About 1.9 million years ago homo erectus was found in Africa.Early Ancestors VocabBands-small groups of people!SPREADINGTHROUGH THE WORLDBy: Eric Hall, Chase Carney, Jack Mangan, Ryan Warner.VocabularyIce Age- A long period of bitter coldGlaciers- Huge sheets of iceTundra- Large treeless plains found in arctic regionsSummary bullet pointsHomo Sapiens who began moved from South Africa to North Africa.The sea levels were 300,000 feet below what they are today, making ice land bridges.The people were nomadic by following the herds of animals.They lived in sod and mammoth bone huts.Between 12,000 and 100,000 years ago descendants of the earliest African bands spread to Asia, Europe, Australia and the AmericasLucy By Shannon KennedyLucy is a ancient hominidDon Johnanson found herShe is 4 feet tallShe died when she was about 19 to 20They named her Lucy because there was a unforgettable momentDon and Tim White rebuilt her a littleShe spent most of her time in a open countryHunters & Gatherersby: Tyrajae Hudson, &Danielle SignorelliHunting skills of Homo sapiensHomo sapiens to hunt they used blades to hunt in south western Asia.

Did you know:That Homo sapiens means wise human.Gathering skills

They gathered berries, nuts, rootsAlso in different regions they also gathered resources for every day needs : shelter, clothes, weapons, ect.VOCABULARY:Artifacts-human made objectsRadiocarbon dating- the determination of the age of objects.Consequence-a affectExtinct- No longer living.Migration- movement from one place to another.NeanderthalsNeanderthals were discovered in 1856 when workers digging for stone found a weird looking human skull and some leg and arm bones in a buried underground cave in Neander Valley in Germany. Thomas Huxly, a British biologist, distinguished it as an early Homo Sapians fossil, the first ever found. Even though the Neanderthals are homo sapiens they are not direct ancestors of modern humans.Migration of Early Man100,000 years ago-The Early Migration of Manstarted in Africa.65,000 years ago-The Migration moved throughThe Nile River, up into Northern Europe, acrossAsia, and down into India.50,000 years ago- The Migration moved furtherup into Europe and also moved to present dayAustralia.35,000 years ago- Migration moved across theBering Land Bridge into North America.12,000-40,000 years ago- The flow of Migration moved through North and South Americaending most mass movement of Man.Early Farming AreasEarly men could no longer hunt and get enough food for their family's. So some natives began to grow crops and rising animals.Producing FoodAbout 10,000 years ago native people learned that they could raise cattle and other food. Now they didnt need to go hunting as much.Tool MakingBy Kelli CordellHow to Make a ToolTo make a needle, early people used a flint tool to cut a triangle shape from an antler.2.

vocabulary agriculture division of labor environment Summery This chapter is about how agriculture, division of labor and environment have effected the way we live our lives from a long time ago to now! Early people began to grow more crops so more people could live in more together. More people moved to more parts of the world to make a bigger population, so different people had to do different jobs. The jobs included farming, making tools, and selling clothing. The leaders of the community came up with ways to protect the community ageist dangers of nature or people, by building walls around there village. people from the early ages built with one whole in the roof to get in and out of. When agriculture failed because of droughts the whole community suffered. Most farmers were unsure about the farming environments so it took many years for farmers to learn the best ways to grow and keep things alive.
