1 Paleolithic and Neolithic Unit 1

2 Bellringer Practice walking in, picking up papers by the door and placing your homework in the in box before the bell rings. ALL CELL PHONE SHOULD BE TURNED OFF! TURNED OFF!

3 Review Procedures Entering class – Take today’s papers – Sharpen pencils, etc. – Start the Bellringer “On time” “On time” means in your seat working when the bell rings

6 Skills Objectives Students will be able to… 1.Identify and locate key features of the textbook. 2.Take effective notes from textbook readings. S S

7 Textbooks You break it (or lose it), you bought it! Make sure your name is in it Make sure my name is in it Make sure the Textbook List is filled out completely and legibly

8 Stations Directions You will have 15 minutes at each station Complete packet located in each folder You may work in pairs within your group NO MORE than 3 per group When time is up pass folder to the next group

9 Stations Review Station 1: Time and Timelines Station 1: Time and Timelines Station 2: Charts and Graphs Station 2: Charts and Graphs Station 3: Textbook scavenger hunt Station 3: Textbook scavenger hunt Station 4: Vocabulary Words/ Maps Station 4: Vocabulary Words/ Maps


11 Prehistory Prehistory – the time in human history before the invention of writing What sources can we use to understand the “prehistoric” world? Objective #1 What this? This help you identify which objective this slide is related to! VOCABULARY word! With definition!

12 Unwritten History 1.Oral histories 2.Drawings 3.Stuff they left behind

13 Oral Histories Storytellers prized in many cultures, and stories are passed down for generations Problems: – “Whisper down the lane” effect – Dead people don’t tell stories

14 Drawings Mostly, cave paintings – Famous pictures from Lascaux (France)


16 Cave Paintings Art is in the eye of the beholder – Stories? – Actual events? – Religious beliefs? – Nice pictures? – Textbooks?

17 Artifacts Something made by people VOCABULARY word!

18 Fossils Solidified remains of living things

19 Using Artifacts Some assembly required – Like a giant puzzle with no idea what the picture will be What if we use things for different purposes? If we know what, do we know when? Some things get lost

20 Studying the Past Archeology Anthropology Objective #2

21 Archeology The study of the human past by examining artifacts and remains – Excavation – Hoping to find ancient settlements, burial sites, tools, etc.

22 Carbon Dating A scientific test used to analyze the age of artifacts and fossils (based on the half-life decay of Carbon-14… ask a science teacher) Pretty accurate for the last 40,000 years or so

23 Anthropology Study of human origins, relationships, and cultures – Try to determine how humans evolved (physically and culturally) – Archeology is a subfield of anthropology What is culture?

24 Culture Culture is a system of beliefs, values, and assumptions about life that guide behavior and are shared by a group of people Everyone has culture What does culture include? Objective #3

32 Early Humans Objective #2

33 Early Humans Start our story at the dawn of the Paleolithic Era, about 2.5 million years ago – the Old Stone Age – Humans created the first tools made out of stone

34 Better than Monkeys Early humans developed 1.Simple stone tools 2.Control of fire 3.Oral language All keys to cooperating in hunts, which bring food and resources

35 Wise Man Smarter, larger-brained humans known as homo sapiens (Latin for “wise man”) – Developed technology Clothing Shelter Art Homo sapiens are modern humans

36 Out of Africa Homo sapiens arose in Africa about 200,000 years ago Migration to all continents (except Antarctica) beginning around 100,000 years ago


38 Hunter-gatherer Life People Profiles Objective #3

39 Source of Food Hunting – Main source, whatever they could catch, kill, and cook! Gathering – Wild fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, etc. Get it? Hunter-gatherers!

40 Size of Groups Small groups – Clans: people, one or a few extended families Why?

41 Permanent Settlements No! They were nomads Why move? – Follow herds – No food left – Seasons change Too cold or hot No water left

42 Location Factors Mainly, Paleolithic (and prehistoric) people followed their food – Animals migrate, so did the people Overpopulation (of people) Overconsumption (of resources in one spot)

43 Getting Along Cooperation was necessary for survival Knew everyone in their clan – all relatives No private property – no where to put it No fighting other groups – no one around Finding food…just not that hard

44 Bellringer – Have completed 10minutes after the bell – Collect your notebook – Cut and glue all items into notebook – Finish Process from last class and begin working on Preview for lesson 2 – REMEMBER the order! Preview (can begin once completed) Notes Process homework from last night

45 Agenda Preview: Discussion Activity Lecture Reading Process

46 Homework Study for Test Will be allowed to take home your notebook DO NOT LOSE IT!

47 Neolithic Age means: – New Stone Age How did Neolithic Age differ from Paleolithic Age? – Learnt to polish tools – Make pottery domesticated – Grow crops and domesticated animals Neolithic Age

48 Shift from hunting and gathering to farming Neolithic Revolution

49 Provided a steady source of food and extra – Causing Need to store food – Causing Permanent Settlement – Causing Population growth – Causing Specialization and Organization Neolithic Revolution Cont.

50 Crops Slash and burn faming Cut tree or grass and burnt them to clear a field Ashes fertilized the soil Domestication  taming of animals Happened slowly Human being to control some animals lives Early Farming Methods Animals
