Millions of years ago, our ancestors survived in a very different environment than we have today. They encountered large, terrifying mammals and had to work each day to ensure food and shelter for their survival. By investigating the past, we can gain greater insight into our relationship to the earth and each other.
Students can enjoy writing and illustrating a story about the lives of early humans! They can use a narrative storyboard to make a creative story that demonstrates their knowledge of early humans daily life and forms of survival.
30,000 YEARS AGO EARLY HUMANS CREATED CAVE PAINTINGS
THEY HAD TO FIND FOOD TO SURVIVE
THEY LIVED IN CAVES FOR PROTECTION
Early Humans lived in caves and created cave paintings. Grog uses them to tell a story to her Paleolithic family. Her cave paintings describe the animals that live near them and their daily lives.
Grog and her tribe are hunter-gatherers, which means that they hunt animals for meat to eat and furs for clothing. They also gather wild nuts, berries, vegetables, and fruits. Their main activities are finding food for survival.
Grog and her Paleolithic family have worked hard to find food all day. They seek shelter in their cave at night to protect them from predators such as saber toothed tigers.
