1 9/19 Do Now: When did the first humans develop (appear on the Earth)? Aim: What led to the development of civilization? What are the characteristics of a civilization? Objectives: You will be able to… Explain the causes and effects of the Agricultural Revolution Identify the characteristics of a civilization Identify where the first civilizations developed Agenda: Early Humans and Agricultural Revolution Review Begin “The Strength of the Strong” Homework: Finish Agricultural Revolution questions

2 Chapter 2: The Development of the World Today How has human civilization developed and progressed over time?

3 An Abbreviated Timeline of Life on Earth 4.5 billion years ago- The solar system and Earth are formed 3.5 billion years ago- Earliest evidence of life on Earth (microbes) 1.2 billion years ago- Multicellular organisms develop 200 million years ago- Mammals develop 150 million years ago- Birds develop 2.5 million years ago- Appearance of Homo genus (early humans) 200,000 years ago- Homo sapiens develop 8,000 years ago- First “cities” develop 2,200 years ago- First city of 1 million Today-Largest city estimated to have 23 million people

24 Review of Ch 2 “-isms” and “-izations” and the Creation of the Developing World Industrial Revolution - Development of factories to mass produce goods -In Europe and US btwn 1750 and 1914 - Caused urbanization Imperialism -European countries controlled much of Africa & Asia in the 1800s and early 1900s for: – Raw materials – Markets for manufactured goods - Causes Africa and Asia to not experience the Industrial Revolution until the mid-1900s Westernization −European nations imposed their Western culture on their colonies in − Language − Religion − Govt. models − Food, dress, customs Nationalism −Pride in one’s country and the desire to rule your own nation −Grew in colonized areas that wanted to drive foreigners out - Led to independence movts. in mid-1900s Eventual Independence and Modernization of Colonies - When formerly colonized nations became independent, they were underdeveloped - Goals: −Improve infrastructure −Cultural change −Diversify economy − Improve education and services −Political stability − But attempting to achieve these goals are costly and can create debt Globalization The increasing connection and interdependence between nations occurring now
