Stable Food Supply ByGrace Evanoff and Madison Ignash
People obtained food in the Paleolithic Age by hunting animals and gathering plants. They did not have a stable, or dependable, food supply. Wild plants and animals grew scarce when people stayed in one area for too long. Hunting was dangerous, and hunters were often injured or killed.
We learned that we can raise sheep, goats, and cattle for the meat. Goats and cattle also provided milk. Mules helped carry heavy loads and pull plows.
We learned that we could grow our own food by collecting and planting seeds of plants
We learned that agriculture is the growing of crops and the domestication of animals.
The intention of agriculture is important because for the first time, people had some control over their food supply.
