Storyboard Text

  • In the Paleolithic times, early humans found out how to use fire to keep them warm and cook their food. Now they can travel to different locations and use fire as a resource.
  • Early humans would use caves as shelters from harsh winters. They could also store their belongings, such as food or tools.
  • By the Mesolithic Age, the early humans created bows and arrows to hunt animals at greater distances. They also were much more efficient and accurate.
  • Canoes were used to fish and gather food and water. They were made of bark from trees that were dug out so they can transport people and items.
  • In the Neolithic times, instead of gathering edible plants, they were beginning to be domesticated so that there was food easily available to people.
  • Animal domestication was also used to easily access food so instead of hunting for them, they would be near by. Populations also grew because of the amount of available food they had compiled.
