Early humanstools charli

  1. 1. Tools Picture by quapan
  2. 2. <ul><li>When humans first appeared, they </li></ul><ul><li>were more apelike and much more </li></ul><ul><li>simpler than what we are now and </li></ul><ul><li>also used much simpler tools and </li></ul><ul><li>don’t have entertainment like us. </li></ul><ul><li>Their tools were so simple nobody </li></ul><ul><li>even uses them now. They didn’t </li></ul><ul><li>have planes to take them around </li></ul><ul><li>the world or computers to </li></ul><ul><li>communicate with other people in </li></ul><ul><li>their villages or community. They </li></ul><ul><li>had stones, spears, harpoons, and </li></ul><ul><li>things like that. They never used </li></ul><ul><li>metal which was a lot more </li></ul><ul><li>powerful. </li></ul>Picture by Andy_Carter
  3. 3. <ul><li>Australopithecus afarensis were </li></ul><ul><li>the first hominids and they were </li></ul><ul><li>a lot smaller than modern </li></ul><ul><li>humans like us. Their brains </li></ul><ul><li>were very small so they didn’t </li></ul><ul><li>know how to make tools but </li></ul><ul><li>they did know to use stones to </li></ul><ul><li>open things and sticks to stick </li></ul><ul><li>into an anthill so when it comes </li></ul><ul><li>out, there will be ants all over it. They couldn’t </li></ul><ul><li>handle tools as well as us because their thumbs </li></ul><ul><li>were formed differently than ours because our </li></ul><ul><li>thumbs weren’t opposed. </li></ul>“ Lucy” taken by Ryan Somma By Evan Ravitz
  4. 4. <ul><li>The Homo habilis hominids were </li></ul><ul><li>slightly smarter than the </li></ul><ul><li>Australopithecus afarensis so they </li></ul><ul><li>were able to make tools, but they </li></ul><ul><li>were very simple like stones that </li></ul><ul><li>were chipped so they could use </li></ul><ul><li>them as knives or sharpened sticks </li></ul><ul><li>to use as spears. They started to </li></ul><ul><li>hunt but they were very bad at it. They would </li></ul><ul><li>also use fire if they could find it but they never </li></ul><ul><li>made it. They would find fire in forest fires, </li></ul><ul><li>storms (Lightning) and sometimes maybe if their </li></ul><ul><li>living quarters went on fire. </li></ul>Picture by CharlesFred Picture by Travis S.
  5. 5. <ul><li>The Homo erectus were the first hominid to </li></ul><ul><li>ever figure out how to make fire so they are </li></ul><ul><li>the first people to cook food and once they </li></ul><ul><li>had fire, they could make things like torches </li></ul><ul><li>that makes hunting easier and also it would </li></ul><ul><li>keep them warm because in this time, some </li></ul><ul><li>Hom0 erectus left Africa and went to explore </li></ul><ul><li>other parts of the world. The Homo erectus </li></ul><ul><li>had better and more weapons. They started </li></ul><ul><li>using axes made of stone. They used traps so </li></ul><ul><li>they could do something else while the traps </li></ul><ul><li>trap animals and when the people are done </li></ul><ul><li>what they did, they would come back and </li></ul><ul><li>take the prey. </li></ul>Picture by Liem Bui Picture by Ian Britton
  6. 6. <ul><li>The Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis were </li></ul><ul><li>extremely good hunters and it was </li></ul><ul><li>because they were stronger and bigger </li></ul><ul><li>than the modern human. They used the </li></ul><ul><li>tools all their ancestors used but they </li></ul><ul><li>improvised on them to make them better, </li></ul><ul><li>lighter, and easier to move around. The </li></ul><ul><li>sapiens Neanderthalensis were the first to </li></ul><ul><li>bury their dead so in their graves, there </li></ul><ul><li>would be tools and personal items the </li></ul><ul><li>person liked. They would put their hammer </li></ul><ul><li>or spear with them out of respect and care. </li></ul><ul><li>They were extremely good hunters that </li></ul><ul><li>used weapons like flaming spears to scare </li></ul><ul><li>or burn animals so they get kind of </li></ul><ul><li>panicked or disorientated. </li></ul>Picture by Gorekun Spear heads, although they are not from back then, they are almost the same except that they are stone, not metal.
  7. 7. <ul><li>Homo sapiens Cro-Magnon were exceptionally good </li></ul><ul><li>hunters that would hunt in a pack and knew how to co- </li></ul><ul><li>ordinate each others strength to help catch prey. They </li></ul><ul><li>made holes in walls and used things like bark to keep </li></ul><ul><li>food inside so they wouldn’t starve in the winter. Like </li></ul><ul><li>Homo erectus and Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis, </li></ul><ul><li>the Homo sapiens Cro-Magnons used traps to catch </li></ul><ul><li>prey while they were not around, but unlike the earlier </li></ul><ul><li>hominids, their traps were way more complicated than </li></ul><ul><li>the ones of the inhabitants before. The Cro-Magnons </li></ul><ul><li>started fishing and making hooks with things like </li></ul><ul><li>twigs and animals bones. They also built rafts and </li></ul><ul><li>canoe like boats to go fishing with in lakes and </li></ul><ul><li>sometimes in the ocean. The Cro-Magnons created the </li></ul><ul><li>bow and arrow which was very helpful in hunting. They </li></ul><ul><li>also made musical instruments that they could play. </li></ul>Picture by malaga
  8. 8. <ul><li>Homo sapiens sapien came to be when farming was invented. These people </li></ul><ul><li>are our earliest ancestors who are still nothing like us, they were still less </li></ul><ul><li>smart and still had simple tools the Cro-Magnon had. But as we fast </li></ul><ul><li>forward, we will be at the 21 st century and people have all sorts of tools like </li></ul><ul><li>guns for hunting and kitchens for hunting but some people still hunt </li></ul><ul><li>traditionally by using knives and bow and arrows. </li></ul>Picture by ILMO JOE
  9. 9. <ul><li>Hominids have evolved a lot and they still are. Some people believe that we </li></ul><ul><li>may become cyborgs some day. Who knows? Anything is possible. </li></ul>
