  1. 1. America In The Beginning Who were the first Americans? How and why did they come here? 30,000 years ago During a period of low temperatures called an ice age The world was covered in glaciers or sheets of ice. This caused ocean levels to rise and expose land. In the Bering straight a land bridge appeared connecting Siberia (Asia) & The Americas This land bridge is known as Beringia. Animals like mammoths crossed the bridge or immigrated to the America's.
  2. 2. What happened when they came to America? How did they meet their new needs? America In The Beginning Hunter's in Asia who moved from place to place to find food or mamoths followed the mammoths and spread out or migrated to the America's The ice age ended warming up glaciers causing water levels to rise covering up the land bridge. Some animals died off like mammoths. Living in many different parts of the Americas the Natives needed to adjust or adapt to every thing in the new surrounds that made up each of their own environments in order to survive
  3. 3. America In The Beginning How did Native Americans adjust to the new environments? What did they have in common? Living in many different parts of the Americas the Natives used the different natural recourses in their own different environments for food, clothing, and shelter. Different groups in different environments developed their own beliefs and ways of life or culture. Groups in the same environments adapted similar life styles, and language creating cultural region. Many Native American have these things in common. 1. Nature has a spirit and believe in many gods. 2. No one can own land. 4. Only use what is needed (no wastes). 5. trade was important to most societies
