How agriculture changed peoples livesBy: Murphy Conley and Kamryn Fleming
Early humans in the Paleolithic age had to hunt for their food. Hunting at this time was very dangerous because they did not have complex weapons so it was not easy to kill the animals they were hunting. There was also a big chance of being attacked by an animal so many people died or got injured.
People in the Neolithic times learned how grow their own food. They did this by collecting seeds and planting the seeds of those plants to eat as a stable food supply instead of having to hunt for their food which was not a stable food supply.
The early humans in the Neolithic age learned that they could use animals as food. They also learned that they could domesticate animals to use them for work. They also learned that they could use animals for milk such as goats and cows. They also learned that they could domesticate bulls to plow fields and do other work for them which made life easier. They also learned that they could domesticate animals and use their meat as food.
Agriculture in the Neolithic age was simple. They domesticated the animals and used them for work and to eat as well. They found seeds to plant as food to eat instead of hunting.
Agriculture was important to early humans because it provided a stable food source. It made life so much easier because they did not have to go out and hunt for food. They had the food right by them in a stable source so it was an easier life once agriculture started.
