    • 1. Ohio History Review “First Unit” When reviewing these slides focus more on the big ideas. Dates are important, but the the key ideas are more important. You can also review pages 50-109 in your book, but this slideshow gives the key information we have studied in class.
    • 2. The Paleoindian Era 1) Paleoindians are considered the earliest Ohioans. 2) Archaeological evidence suggests that the Paleoindian Culture started in Ohio around 9000 B.C. or about 11,000 years ago. Artist rendition of Paleo-Indians 3) Paleoindians were hunter- after a hunt. gatherers. They didn’t know how to farm. So they moved around frequently for survival.
    • 3. The Moundbuilders
    • 4. The Moundbuilders The Adena • lived in what is now Ohio from about 3,000 years ago to about 2,000 years ago. • are considered to be Ohio’s first farmers. This helped the Adena to settle in an area instead of having to move frequently like the Paleoindians. This also gave the Adena the time to do other things like create pottery and build mounds. • settled in areas near rivers, most likely because the rivers gave them a fresh water supply and fish for a food source.
    • 5. The Moundbuilders The Hopewell • lived in Ohio from about 2,000 years ago to 1,500 years ago. • like the Adena, the Hopewell settled near rivers and were also farmers. • The Hopewell also built mounds. • There is evidence that the Hopewell were also “long- distance” traders. In and near Hopewell mound sites, archaeologists have found tools and art made from materials like obsidian and mica that are not naturally found in Ohio.
    • 6. The Moundbuilders The Fort Ancient People • About 1,000 years ago a newer mound building culture called the Fort Ancient People lived in Ohio. • They lived a life that many archaeologists think was very similar to the Hopewell, but they had much larger villages and built much larger mounds.
    • 7. The Mounds Images of Great Serpent Mound in Adams County. The mounds created and left by the Moundbuilders most likely had lots of purposes. Archaeologists believe these mounds could have been burial mounds, used for religious ceremonies, and possibly used as a calendar device (tracking shadows that parts of the mounds made)
    • 8. The Historic Tribes There were differences From the early in these tribes, but 1700s until the mid there were also many 1800s, the “historic” similarities.

    • 10. The “Road to Statehood” The Northwest Ordinance 1) In 1787, The U.S. Congress passed the Northwest Ordinance which created the Northwest Territory. 2) Ohio’s first “American” settlement was Marietta. Cleveland and Cincinnati came later. 3) To become a state, an area needed: 1) government leaders chosen by the U.S. Congress. 2) to have 5,000 white males in the area so a vote for a legislature could happen. 3) a total of 60,000 residents so that a state constitution could be written.
