Early humans and tools

  1. 1. By Keeyan Kazemi
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>In the earlier last million years of the cenezoic period, human-like people lived and roamed earth. They evolved and evolved until they finally became just like us! But while they still were “cave men”, they used something that every single modern day person needs to count on. Tools. Even millions of years ago, these creatures used tools to help them survive, whether its poking a stick in an ants nest or making weapons to hunt holy mammoths. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Australopithecus Afarensis <ul><li>Australopithecus Aferensis were the very first humans to ever exist. They lived here 1.2 to 4 MYA (million years ago).They had small brains due to a smaller cranium, which caused them NOT to hunt. Instead they just gathered organism and waited until they died. Then they ate them. This made hunting a lot harder, because of their lack of intelligence to create tools. The only tools they can use are the ones they find, like a stick to gather ants out of an ants nest </li></ul>
  4. 4. Homo Habilis <ul><li>Homo Habilis were the very first creatures to create tools. They could hunt with tools, because they became bigger, stronger, and smarter then before. They were very simple hunters though, using tools as simple as a sharpened stick to hunt smaller animals. One thing that they could NOT make, was fire. They could only use what they had of the fire that they found. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Homo Erectus <ul><li>Home Erectus were more advanced at using tools. They were the first to create fire. Because of this, food, warmth, and light were no longer much of a problem. Another advantage they had was weapons. Homo Erectus could make stone weapons, which is why their period was more commonly known as, “the stone age”. The reason they were so much more advanced then Homo Habilis was because they had bigger brains </li></ul>
  6. 6. Homo Sapiens (Neanderthals) <ul><li>Neanderthals were taller, stronger, and even smarter then us! Because of this, they had the ability to make more advanced tools then others. Neanderthals could make sharp weapons out of stone, and therefore, they were much better hunters then homo sapiens (Cro-Magnons). They were able to build shelters using their tools, and they were even the first form of man to bury their dead. Unfortunately, the Cro-Magnons didn’t want their company, and they killed them all. The Neanderthals couldn’t fight back, even with their heavy duty weapons. They were outnumbered </li></ul>
  7. 7. Homo Sapiens (Cro-Magnon) <ul><li>The Cro-Magnons, were the early modern-day humans. They could hunt, lay traps, build rafts, build canoes, make clothes, make jewellery, and fight. They could also do things we do every day! They could use tools, draw, paint, talk, make music, and even sew! Of course, they were even smarter then their earlier life forms, otherwise, they could not use and make all these tools. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Homo Sapiens Sapiens <ul><li>Homo Sapiens Sapiens are the modern-day humans. Also known as, us. We can use tools much better then any other form of human. The reason is because we are smarter then every single person in the history of humans (other then the Neanderthals). We use tools everyday. We would have to be extremely poor if we didn’t. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Conclusion <ul><li>As you can see, there is a large history in the years of man. At first, a mans intelligence was extremely low. So low as to they had to wait for their food to die before eating them! Now, we can just go to the nearest supermarket and buy our food, using the money we have in our wallet. So if you think about the life we have now, you would know that its extremely complicated, compared to life 4 million years ago. Humans have a long history, each becoming more advanced then the last. Now, life looks like a very complicated thing. </li></ul>
