  1. 1. Early Man’s Tools By Alexa K.
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Australopithecus afarensis <ul><li>Australopithecus afarensis were not very smart, with a small brain, so they couldn’t make tools. But, they did use very simple tools. </li></ul><ul><li>Something they may have done is put a stick in an ant/termite hole, and got the ants/termites on the stick to eat. </li></ul><ul><li>These people didn’t hunt, they scavenged and found dead animals to eat. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Homo habilis <ul><li>These hominids were a great deal smarter than the Australopithecus afarensis, allowing them to make better tools. </li></ul><ul><li>They were able to make simple shelters using branches, a new tool. </li></ul><ul><li>Also, with the new ability to bang rocks together to make sharp edges – good for cutting, scratching, and chopping things up. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Homo erectus <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>They made small traps (like snares) to capture animals. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis <ul><li>They made stone knives to kill and eat animals, which made them very skillful hunters. </li></ul><ul><li>They were able to build good shelters that protected them from animals and other hominids. </li></ul><ul><li>They made jewellery, and buried there dead in a grave, and put jewellery in with them. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Homo sapiens Cro-Magnon <ul><li>Started hunting in a tribe, using there complex tools. </li></ul><ul><li>They also used traps to help get more food. </li></ul><ul><li>Became knowledgeable able fishing, making fishhooks from deers’ antlers and nets. </li></ul><ul><li>Build rafts for traveling to nearby places. </li></ul><ul><li>They can tools for drawing on cave walls. </li></ul><ul><li>They could also draw, sew, make music and paint. </li></ul><ul><li>First to make burial sites, and they buryed there dead with beads, fur garments, and ivory jewellery. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Homo sapiens sapiens <ul><li>Began there lives with the invention of farming – they had control over there food. </li></ul><ul><li>They had VERY complex tools, like weaving baskets from long reeds. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Conclusion <ul><li>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. </li></ul>
