Lets look at pages 2 and 3 in your book
  • Why does the start of each chapter have a time
    line?
  • Why is there a map on the top right of the start
    of each Chapter?
  • Is there anything you should read on this page?
  • What else on that page looks like it could be
    useful?

    them the most.

Lets start on Section I Prehistoric
Time(Pages 2-9)
  • This section is about

    believe that human pre-history began in Africa.
  • How some groups of pre-historic humans developed
    tools.
  • How humans adapted to changing conditions in
    their environment.

  • Archeologists people who study the past
  • Items they find helps them figure out the past
    even 6-7 million years ago during the stone
    age.
  • Modern technology has helped archeologists a lot
    things like carbon-14 dating, ground sensors,
    and even space/satellite images.

Early humans
1
  • When scientists looked for early humans, they
    looked in Africa.
  • These scientists were anthropologists people
    who study humans and their characteristics

  • Two of these anthropologists were Louis and Mary
    Leaky -they found a hominid fossil as much as
    4.5 million years old (the oldest human-like
    fossil found).
  • Their son found another homo-habilis about
    1.8 million years old.
  • And, another man found Lucy a skeleton about
    3 million years old an Australopithecus
    hominid.

Anthropologists think

  • About 2.6 million years ago, people started using
    tools.
  • Humans are the only species on earth that uses
    tools so thats a pretty big thing.
  • Its the very start of human culture a way of
    life thats passed to the next generation.

Some other groups of hominids
  • Homo-erectus first to use fire, hunt animals,
    cook food, fish (the men), and care for children,
    and hunt for nuts, fruits, and berries (the
    women).
  • Also began to migrate (move) to new places
    (food, warmth, safety).
  • People who move around all the time can also be
    called (nomads)

  • Neanderthals
  • Early homo sapiens
  • Lived about 70,000 BC
  • They knew how to hunt, use stone and wood tools,
    and lives mostly in caves, and maybe even played
    some music.
  • No one really know why they disappeared, but
    maybe during an ice age.
  • Cro-Magnons
  • May have competed with Neanderthals for food.
  • Good toolmakers, hunters, and fishermen.
  • Superior language skills
  • By 8000 BC were very much like modern humans.
  • Well known for their art (next slide)
