For many years people depended nature for there survival. These people were called nomads. The nomads were people who lived long time ago who had no permenet homes.
We learned to grow crops so we built a permanet home.
The men hunted animals for food and women gathered wild plants. But when there where no more animals to kill or no more plants to gather the nomads moved to a new spot. Natural disasters could possibly reduce thier food sources. Wich would lead to environment changes that might have bad affects on prolpr in nearby regions.
Neghbors are so much fun!
About 8,000 years ago new ways of geting food emerged. This was the life changing discovery, farming. Instead of hunting and gathering thier food from around them they learned to grow thier own food. Some food they grew where wheat, barley, rice, and corn, they were grown all over the world. Wild animals were capturered and domesticated.
Farming allowed people to build permanet homes. They built thier homes with stone or wood. Also, they built homes by rivers, or wherever the ground fertile enough to grow crops.
Farming didn't only allow people to build permanet homes but it also allowed themto build commumities. As these communities grew they needed order, so they made rules or, laws. There had to be leaders apointed.
Finally, permanent home's.
Along with the surplus of food and better homes, most people didn't need to farm, but they did focus on there jobs. Division of labor allowed people to build better farming equipment like ox-drawn plows. The wheel aided humans with transporting goods from one place to another.
