As we go through the interactive, please label eachartifact and write a brief description Stone Age Toolkit We are going to learn what kinds of tools early humansused in the Stone Age. We will make predictions abouteach tool and then find out their actual uses. Pleasename each tool and write a brief description for eachtool. toolkit.html Mapping Human Migration

For each event, be sure to draw the arrows that showthe movements of early humans as they traveled out ofAfrica. Number each set of arrows as we go (follow along withthe map on the SMARTBoard) Fill in the blanks blow the map (numbers will matchup with the arrows) Homework Download the PDF on my webite:2_turning_point_-_the_neolithic_revolution.pdf Save it to yourcomputer!

You will have five minutes to complete your quiz. THE NEOLITHIC REVOLUTION MAIN IDEAS For most of human existence we hunted or gathered our food
Once we start farming, people are able to have jobs(specialization of labor) New jobs allow for new things like complex art, complex tools,complex religions, and complex permanent settlements Social Classes or status is now based on job, or gender insteadof ability Paleolithic vs. Neolithic Age
Paleo = Old Lith = Stone Paleolithic means theOld Stone Age Last approximately fromthe invention of the firststone tool about 2.6million years ago toabout 10,000 B.C.E. Hominids and HomoSapiens (Humans) Neo = New Lith = Stone Neolithic means the NewStone Age Begins around 10,000B.C.E. when agriculturebegins and ends around B.C.E. with theinvention of metal tools Only Homo Sapiens(Humans) Dwellings Paleolithic Neolithic Caves, huts, skin tents
Mudbrick with timber Lifestyle Paleolithic Neolithic Nomadic Groups of up to 50 Tribal
Hunters & Gathers Neolithic Sedentary Permanent settlements Raise livestock/agriculture Family structure changes Tools Paleolithic Neolithic Chipped stone Wood weapons

Humans were taller andlived longer comparedto Neolithic people People got more exercise Neolithic Less nutritious diet ofmostly grains People were shorter andhad a lower lifeexpectancy New diseases emerge Women had morechildren Food Paleolithic Neolithic Hunters and Gatherers Meat, fish, berries
Store only what they cancarry Neolithic Grew crops such as corn,wheat, beans Storage for surplus(extra stuff) Main Discoveries Paleolithic Neolithic Fire Rough stone tools
Agriculture Tools of polished stone Homework Create a flyer that will persuade a human living in10,000 BCE to either switch to agriculture fromhunting and gathering or switch to hunting and gathering from agriculture.

This is a great website: We will have a split block with Mrs. Newtons class soeveryone needs to have this for MONDAY regardless ifI have you on an A or B day! Bell Ringer # 10 Why do people use images or pictures tocommunicate or tell stories? What sort of things do you think pictures left behindby ancient people tell us about the way they lived? Do you think it is easier or more difficult to expressideas through images instead of written language? Common Symbols in todays world
Where do you see these signs? What do they mean? Why do we use the same symbols and colors? Why would these signs not have words? Cave Paintings Cave paintings found all over the world.
In the Paleolithic Era, most paintingdepict humans hunting or just animals. They may have practiced animism or thebelief that plants, objects, and the naturalworld have souls Dark colors like black, brown, and redswere made from crushed rocks, shells,plants, or charcoal mixed with meltedanimal fats and plant sap Brushed on with hair, leaves, or fiberbrushes Often signed with palm print Cave Paintings Cave Painting continued
Show daily life and whatwas important to theartist (much like modernart) No written languageexisted back then, sothese paintings are someof the best clues of whatlife was like in the OldStone Age #paleokidsarethebestkids #mycaveonfleek Cave Painting Activity
