Transcript

  • 1. Early Man’s Tools By Alexa K.
  • 2. Introduction
    • There are six different types of hominids that we have discovered. They made, and used tools to survive, hunt, and make weapons. On the following slides, I will show you how each hominid made and used their tools.
  • 3. Australopithecus afarensis
    • Australopithecus afarensis were not very smart, with a small brain, so they couldn’t make tools. But, they did use very simple tools.
    • Something they may have done is put a stick in an ant/termite hole, and got the ants/termites on the stick to eat.
    • These people didn’t hunt, they scavenged and found dead animals to eat.
  • 4. Homo habilis
    • These hominids were a great deal smarter than the Australopithecus afarensis, allowing them to make better tools.
    • They were able to make simple shelters using branches, a new tool.
    • Also, with the new ability to bang rocks together to make sharp edges – good for cutting, scratching, and chopping things up.
    • Even though these people didn’t hunt (they were still scavengers) if they found a dead animal, they would use their sharp stones to cut open the animal and eat.
  • 5. Homo erectus
    • A really important tool that was found in this era was fire. Even though they couldn’t make fire yet, I they found it, they could use it.
    • They also learned how to make more complex tools like hand axes, and tools for killing animals. This gave homo erectus a chance to hunt for their food.
    • They made small traps (like snares) to capture animals.
  • 6. Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis
    • They made stone knives to kill and eat animals, which made them very skillful hunters.
    • They were able to build good shelters that protected them from animals and other hominids.
    • They made jewellery, and buried there dead in a grave, and put jewellery in with them.
  • 7. Homo sapiens Cro-Magnon
    • Started hunting in a tribe, using there complex tools.
    • They also used traps to help get more food.
    • Became knowledgeable able fishing, making fishhooks from deers’ antlers and nets.
    • Build rafts for traveling to nearby places.
    • They can tools for drawing on cave walls.
    • They could also draw, sew, make music and paint.
    • First to make burial sites, and they buryed there dead with beads, fur garments, and ivory jewellery.
  • 8. Homo sapiens sapiens
    • Began there lives with the invention of farming – they had control over there food.
    • They had VERY complex tools, like weaving baskets from long reeds.
  • 9. Conclusion
    • This powerpoint shows how the hominids improved their tools skills through the ages, until they evolved into us, who have the skill to make the most complex tools.
