Stone Age People 2,000,000 years ago, eastern Africa Gathered fruits & nuts Hunted small animals
Early Achievements of Stone age people Creation of small tools Controlled fire Developed language Gained knowledge; created better tools Became nomads
1 st Agricultural Revolution 10,000 years ago Tamed and domesticated animals Farmed SE Asia, Middle East, Americas, 1 st farming societies People created permanent settlements
1 st Agricultural Revolution Families grew Religions developed –Polytheistic – gods controlled the success of harvests, hunts, daily life, etc Governments developed New technologies for farming Language evolved
1 st Civilizations (these facts will be the same for each group of people we study this year) Civilization – a highly organized group of people with their own language and ways of living Developed near rivers/ bodies of water Well organized governments
1 st Civilizations (these facts will be the same for each group of people we study this year) Religions Language Specialized skills & jobs Social classes
World Powers in 1300 China, Middle East, Africa Regions became wealthy through trade Europe was in the Middle Ages at this time and was not a world power
Emergence of Europe Strong central governments grew in Europe Europe gained control of trade routes in the 1500s & 1600s, new ships New Technology –Ancient Learning, Muslim Scholars –Gun Powder & Compass, China –New weapons and Inventions New economies - capital

Identifications Population Density Cash Crop Modernization Literacy Imperialism Westernization Nationalism 1 st Agricultural Revolution
The Cold War 1945-1980s USA & USSR use their influence after WWII USA & USSR fight for control of natural resources (Oil, trade, natural gas)
The Other Side of Outsourcing Disposable Income Disposable Time Positive Changes to India Negative Changes to India
Goals of Modernizing Nations Political Stability Economic Diversity Increased Education Better Services
Problems facing Developing Nations Population Explosion Urbanization Extreme Debt Gap between Rich and Poor Reaction to Cultural Change
Issues of Global Concern Refugees – war forces people to move from home nation Drugs – no explanation needed Terrorism – no explanation needed The Environment – it won’t last forever Human Rights Rapid change of technology
Groups that help Developing Coutnries The United Nations (UN)
Critical Thinking How does the outsourcing video on India show diffusion, disposable time and income, generation gaps, global interdependence, and goals of modernizing nations?
