I hope father will catch some meat. If not we will have to leave again
I'm so happy that we can grow our food
I'm so glad we have permanent homes!
And we don't have too leave every time food runs out
In the Paleolithic age people were nomads and hunter-gatherers. Their only source of food was what ever the men got from hunting and some plants the women gathered. When food ran out, as in when men could not find more animals and women could not find more plants the people would have to leave and find another place that had food.
I will give you some corn if you give me some wood
During the Agricultural Revolution people learned how to farm and plant, which gave them crops. They also learned to domesticate animals and use them for different purposes like milk and meat. This agriculture helped many people, for example, men not to be out hunting all day, and women/kids to see their father/husband during the day. This revolution was a big change in a positive way for all of the early farmers who had to go through the hard Paleolithic times.
Surplus of good food/Population Grows

For permanent shelters, people would build them out of mud bricks stacked together and completed with different in shape. The shapes were either a circle or a rectangle. In addition, to strengthen the walls and roof they added tree branches and stones which went in the mud. The houses had high openings and it was so tall that historians say that people need to use a ladder to get inside the house.
Specialized dream jobs
I will make some spears and knife blades for the men
Trading is resourceful, because people can trade inventions or they can trade food and materials. If one community has a big surplus of one resource they can trade with another community for another resource. By trading with other people, they are getting into contact with each other and sharing ideas , inventions and knowledge.
The surplus of good food helps people through difficult times by providing food. That has made a big change for more people to survive and have children. The population grew from 2 million people to more than 90 million people. In the past when food was not enough less people would want to have babies because they can barely feed their already existing family. Once people discovered farming they have had a surplus of food options to keep their family full and healthy.
Since people were less dependent on hunting and gathering plants so people started doing different specialized jobs. For example some people may have made weapons and other people baskets or more. People would make what their specialized job would be and trade for whatever they needed most in their households.
