Early human food and clothing By: Vincent
Some people think that we were the first humans on earth, but that is not true. There are six known hominids before modern humans. Their names are Australopithecus afarensis, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, Homo sapiens (Neanderthalensis), Homo sapiens (Cro-Magnon) and Homo sapiens sapiens. Each hominid was very different, looked different and they all lived in a very different way.
The Australopithecus aferensis were the first hominids on earth, but they had a very small brain and that limited the actions they could do. The Australopithecus aferensis were more like apes than humans, and they were very harry so they didn’t need any clothes. Australopithecus aferensis diet was mostly made up of fruits and vegetables they found. If a Australopithecus aferensis found a dead animal it would scavenge of it but the Australopithecus aferensis couldn’t cook the meat and kill the germs on it so they were ill a lot making their lifespan very short.
Animal kills animal takes what it can get Animal left to decompose Scavengers eat dead animal after animal is left there
Even though homo habilis were more advanced that that Australopithecus afarensis they still couldn't make fire but if they found in a forest fire, they would use it until it ran out. The Homo habilis used very simple tools to get ants to eat, but the Homo habilis still didn’t hunt or wear clothes. The Homo habilis were still more like apes than humans, and were still scavengers.
Homo erectus were the first to stand up straight, and were also the first to make very simple tools like this stone hand axe. The Homo erectus were also the first to hunt, and they were the first to use fire. When the Homo erectus learned to use fire, they cooked their food making the meat have less germs. The homo erectus were also smart enough to talk about what they did during the day.
Homo sapiens (Neanderthalensis)
The Homo sapiens (Neanderthalensis) were bigger than the average human and they were the first to bury their dead. The Neanderthalensis were very good hunters with their new weapons they made. They also had a normal routine, like breakfast, lunch, dinner and story time. They also make nice clothes from animal fur.
Homo sapiens (Cro-Magnon)
Cro-Magnon were very similar to the modern human. They fished, stored their food and they were very sufficient hunters. They made hooks, needles, and they were the first to draw cave paintings. They had a verity of food they were also the first to brush their teeth. The Cro-Magnons cloths were very warm and looked very nice.
Homo sapiens sapiens
The homo sapien sapien are the current hominid. The sapien sapien were the only hominid that could farm therefore, they had more control about how they get food. The Homo sapien sapien had very complex clothes very and we created very tasty food.
All hominids are very advanced race of things, and the homo sapien sapien is currently the hominid right now. What will the next hominid be? Will it be cyborg? Or will humans just die out? Only time will tell.
