A01a_Ch01-Beginnings of Civilization- Peopling of the World Prehistory – 2500 BCE
Along with class lessons and activities, this assignment will help us address this essential question: Where did early human beings originate and what were some of their technological and artistic achievements?
The topics discussed in this unit will wind and weave through the following historical themes:
INTERACTION WITH ENVIRONMENT
As early humans spread throughout the world, they adapted to each environment they encountered. As time progressed, they learned to use natural resources.
SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
The earliest peoples came up with new ideas and inventions in order to survive. As settlements started and expanded, new technologies developed to control the environment.
Pre- humans, and their modern human descendants, hunted animals and gathered wild plant foods for thousands of years. Then, about 10,000 years ago, they learned to tame animals and plant crops. Gradually, more complex economies would develop.
