Tools of the early man

  1. 1. TOOLS OF THE EARLY MAN By: Mary Heale
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION <ul><li>Most of the tools that we have the tools that we have today were originally made by the people that we came from. Some of those tools are the harpoon and spears. Even though we came from these apes/humans, we are different in many different ways, not only in looks. </li></ul>
  3. 3. AUSTRALOPITHECUS AFARENSIS <ul><li>To small a brain to make tools. </li></ul><ul><li>Used already made tools like a twig. (They would stick it into a termite hole, and have it come out covered in bugs. </li></ul><ul><li>Also would use things like stones to crack open nuts. </li></ul><ul><li>Couldn’t make hunting tools, so they gathered and scavenged for already dead animals. </li></ul><ul><li>Not yet discovered fire </li></ul>
  4. 4. HOMO HABILIS <ul><li>First to make tools </li></ul><ul><li>Mostly stone and wood tools and weapons with sharpened ends. May have used bone tools </li></ul><ul><li>Can use fire if it has already been made by something else </li></ul><ul><li>Some of the tools were scrapers, primitive hammers, sidescraper, and knife edges </li></ul><ul><li>Started the stone age because their tools were made out of stone </li></ul>
  5. 5. HOMO ERECTUS <ul><li>First to make and control fire. (used tools to do so.) They made it by twirling a short sharpened stick in a wooden groove filled with wood shavings to start the fire. Because they could make fire, they could live in colder climates </li></ul><ul><li>May have used tools to make rafts to travel over waters </li></ul><ul><li>Used more complex tools such as axes, and long distance tools like spears </li></ul><ul><li>By using bones and rocks to chip away at pieces of flint, the homo erectus were able to make blades for cutting and scraping </li></ul>
  6. 6. HOMO SAPIENS <ul><li>Made stone, knives which is a process that takes nine steps, and about 250 blows with a hammer to make </li></ul><ul><li>Made the first throwing weapons such as harpoons and spears </li></ul><ul><li>Used their tools to make more complex structures to sleep in and use for shelters when they didn’t live in caves </li></ul><ul><li>Advanced tools that we still use today </li></ul><ul><li>Made tools to bury their dead </li></ul>
  7. 7. HOMO SAPIENS CRO-MAGNON <ul><li>Used the most complex tools to make canoes and rafts </li></ul><ul><li>Also used tools to make traps to help them hunt and get food with not very much effort </li></ul><ul><li>Also made tools to sew, make drums, and to draw, and any other things for entertainment like that </li></ul><ul><li>Made tools to help them make jewellery, clothing, and bow and arrows </li></ul><ul><li>Made fishhooks </li></ul>
  8. 8. HOMO SAPIENS SAPIENS <ul><li>Us! </li></ul><ul><li>Have made the most superior tools that we still use today. Some of those tools have become better tools like the computer. The computers and phones and stuff like that are one of the newest inventions. </li></ul>
  9. 9. CONCLUSION <ul><li>Overall, all of these people have made tools that we probably wouldn’t be alive without them. They have tools to help you think like computers, some to help you with warmth, and many others for things that would be hard to live without. </li></ul>From this, to this then FINALLY this
