    By :
    Michael , Beyazit, Leo, and Andreea
  • 2. Were Homo sapiens started.
    We know that Homo sapiens originate from Africa. Sadly we don’t know were exactly in Africa.
    From my research most
    people say that home sapiens originated from
    Ethiopia or Zambia

  • 5. Diet
    Homo sapiens spend most of their time looking for food. They gathered plants, and hunted or found dead animals. About 164,000 years ago they were collecting and cooking shellfish. Nowadays we eat a very wide range of meat and plants.
  • 6. Miscellaneous
    Homo sapiens appeared about 200,000 years ago. They lived in tribes and had trading groups where they exchanged goods.
    Homo means human and sapiens means wise in Latin.
  • 7. Homo sapiens have beliefs that are called religions. There are thousand of different religions including Christianity, Buddhism, and Islamism. Homo sapiens used to disagree about which religion is better.
    Depending on the religion, homo sapiens today celebrate different special occasions such as holidays, marriage, and the coming of age.
  • 8. Environment of Homo Sapiens
    The environment of homo sapiens was always changing. It wasn’t stable. Rain, storms, snow, eruptions, sun, desert and more…
  • 9. Shelter of Homo Sapiens
    They built shelters out of branches and also they built tents with leaves and branches bark of trees. They created man-made structures. It looked like the Indian tents but instead from leaves and connect them with vines.
  • 10. As researched by Michael Taft Morris
  • 11. Description
    Homo sapiens have lighter skeletons than those humans who came before them
    Large brains: approximately 1300 cubic centimetres
    Thin walled, high vaulted skull
    with a forehead almost perpendicular
    to the ground
    The main differences between homo
    sapiens sapiens, and homo sapiens is
    that we have more brains and brawn
  • 12. Tools
    As researched by Michael Taft Morris
  • 13. Different Tools
    Most tools where made of: stone, ivory, bone, and antlers
    Knives, scrapers, and spear points were just some of the tools in their arsenal
    These tools were used to hunt, gather, and prepare food
    Soon these tools were also used to craft items with less need
