What is the difference between a fossil and an artifact? Fossils show signs of plant or animal life preserved (saved) in rock. Artifacts are weapons, pottery, tools, or other things made by humans.
THE FARMING REVOLUTION People could live in one place People began to build villages People developed communities with places of worship Populations grew in large numbers Beginning of trade Developed different kinds of jobs Crafts developed Trade improved
How did the Paleolithic and Neolithic Ages differ? During the Paleolithic period, people lived life as hunters and gatherers moving from place to place. (nomadic lifestyle) People of the Neolithic Ages developed farming, communities, trade, and specialized jobs. They did not live a nomadic lifestyle.
How did Paleolithic people adapt to their environment and use tools to help them survive? Lived as nomads searching for food to eat, and lived in caves to keep warm. No, no, no…..This is not my idea of a good life. I wouldn’t survive without my curling iron and blow dryer.
How did life change for people during the Neolithic Age? No longer nomads (stayed in one place) Villages & communities developed Sophisticated tools Specialized jobs More trade took place Learned to farm This lifestyle is more appealing to me; however, I still need my curling iron, blow dryer, and indoor plumbing.
