Paleolithic Age During this age hunting and gathering were very important for survival. This means that they had to look around for food instead of just making it. They didn't build homes until later so their home was just a cave. But once in a while, the food would run out in a certain place, so they would have to move somewhere else. That means their homes weren't permanent. They also never had any clothes and as a result they had to live in warm conditions. This means Africa!
Both the paleolithic age and Neolithic age required stone tools to help them in their lives. For example, in this picture the hominid is creating a spear. He can use this for hunting. Stone tools were practically game changers and helped them survive in almost all categories. Hominids also lived in tribes, but both ages had some sort of leader.
During this era, languages began to develop. The language they were using were very basic and not too complex as you can see in the picture below. Art became a hobby for the hominids during this time. It even stretched from the Paleolithic Age to the Neolithic Age.
Hi! I'm good.
Hi! How are you?
Neolithic Age The Neolithic Age was the beginning of farming. During this time they learned to grow crops instead of hunting and gathering. For this reason they were able to build permanent shelters.
During this age, people started created clothing like jackets, shirts, pants, and much more. This allowed them to travel to colder environments. Fire also became a huge part in the Neolithic Age. Not only did people know how to control fire, they also knew how to make it. This helped them stay warm in the coldest of places.
When farming, groups often had a surplus amount of food, they used their extras to trade with other tribes and get what they needed. Also, with hunting and gathering out of the way, humans were able to form societies with jobs.
