5 Food They ate meat from many other animals, nuts, berries, shellfish, honey, bird eggs, and roots. If they didn’t have food, they chewed on bones for fun to get the bone marrow. Since they were the first ones to make fire, they could cook food their meat. They drank water from rivers or lakes. (2)

7 Shelter For homes, they lived in caves. Another possible home was tree branches. (4)

8 Daily Life They were hunters and gatherers. The men hunted and the women gathered.(5)

9 Tools They used rocks for tools and to make fire. They used rocks to sharpen other rocks.(6)

10 Fire They were the first group to make fire; they made it by smashing rocks together until a spark was created. (7)
