2The Paleolithic Age Paleolithic – Old Stone Age Paleolithic people lived in small hunting and gathering groups of about 20 to 30 people. Everyone contributed to feeding the group. Men hunted, while women and children hunted and gathered.
7The Last Ice AgeThe last Ice Age ended about 12,000 B.C. The weather became warmer and as the ice glaciers receded (melted) it fed new rivers throughout the northern hemisphere.The end of the Ice Age caused the ideal warm weather and water sources for farming.
10The Neolithic Revolution Neolithic – New Stone AgeAbout 10,000 B.C. nomadic women realized how to farm from scattering seeds and discovering plant growth. They discovered farming or agriculture. By producing their own food they could stay in one place.
