In the Paleolithic Age(2.5million years ago-8000 B.C.), they gathered berries, nuts,fruit, and seeds, not knowing if there would be food in the future. The food intake was not consistent.
Hope there will be some for tomorrow.
We are going to eat some delicious berries tonight!
In the Paleolithic Age, the same problem arose in hunting as in gathering. Would there be enough in the future? Would you even catch game today? The food intake was not consistent.
But if we hunt all of them now, how will we have food for tomorrow?
In the Paleolithic Age, they didn't have advanced tools to use. They used to use pieces of rock, and they use to carve them to make them sharp to cut things or hunt.
Honey, could you hand me a knife please? I need to cut the meat. While you are there, please get me a hammer to flatten it.
What are you talking about? What are those?
We will have a good harvest this year. A good and consistent intake of food!
In the Neolithic Age(8000B.C-4000B.C), farming was invented. People in certain areas no longer needed to hunt and gather. Instead, they domesticated plants, and grew there own crops! They had a consistent food intake and didn't have to worry about if they were going to have food or not tomorrow.
That's awesome Dad!
In the neolithic age, they also learned to domesticate animals, so they had meat at the ready. The animals also helped them carry heavy loads. to sum it up, the animals Domestication was a big step from where we were before.
Let's see. Which one?
Emma, you get to pick the cow you want to eat for dinner today!
In the Neolithic Age,they also settled in one place because they no longer needed to hunt and gather. They started to build communities and began to make different jobs because not everyone needed to be a farmer.
