Introduction:


Think-Pair-Share: How do scientists divide the Stone Age? & How did people get food during the Stone Age?
- Historians divide the Stone age into two periods:
Paleolithic Age
&
Neolithic Age
!

- During the
Paleolithic Age
people got food by roaming from place to place to hunt wild animals, and gather berries and seeds from the plants they found.

- The
Neolithic Age
began when some people learned how to raise animals and crops for food which allowed them to stay in one place.

- This gradual shift from
hunter-gatherers
(food collectors) to
farmers
(food producers) is one of the most important advances in human development!
During the
Paleolithic

Age
, people were
hunter
-
gatherers
, and they left clues with their cave paintings.
The New Stone Age, or
Neolithic

Age
, began when people started to farm and produce their own food.
Many
Neolithic
settlements were located in the
Fertile

Crescent
(
Catal

Hoyuk
)
Creating a Stable Food Supply
Early farmers learned how to
domesticate
animals, to raise and use them for people's needs.
The growing of crops and the
domestication
of animals are called
agriculture
.
For the first time, people had some control of their food supply.
Making Permanent Shelter
During the
Paleolithic

Age
, people lived in caves or rough tent-like structures.
These were temporary shelters because hunter-gatherers were
nomads
.
Permanent shelter was important because houses gave people protection from weather and animals, created large communities, and made life comfortable.
Think-Pair-Share
: What were some advantages and disadvantages of building permanent houses?
Think-Pair-Share
: Why was agriculture one of the greatest advances in human history?

1. What was NOT a result of people developing specialized skills?

a. improving the quality of what they made
b. making things beautiful rather than just useful
c. moving more often in search of food
d. trading with other people for different things
2. What is true about life in Paleolithic times?

a. In Paleolithic times, people spent most of their time finding enough food to live.
b. In Paleolithic times, people lived in large communities and moved frequently.
c. In Paleolithic times, people developed special skills such as weaving and farming.
d. In Paleolithic times, people lived in permanent structures made of mud bricks.
3. If you were a Neolithic trader, what most likely happened as you traveled and traded?

a. You found out how other groups lived .
b. You made a lot of money and moved to a new place.
c. You invented an alphabet and started writing.
d. You became a better hunter by following animals.
4. Why did people live in larger communities during the Neolithic Age than earlier times?

a. They needed more people for hunting and gathering.
b. They could grow enough food to support more people.
c. They created better ways of getting along with people.
d. They could trade their crops with other groups.

AIM:
WALT summarize the
domestication
of plants and animals created a stable food supply using details.
Do Now:
1. What is
trade
?

2. What is a
resource
?

3. What is different between the
Paleolithic

Age
and
Neolithic

Age
?

4. O.P.T.I.C.
Beginning to Trade
Bread or GANAS!
1. Why did people live in larger communities during the
Neolithic

Age
than in earlier times?

2. If you were building a place to live during the
Neolithic

Age
, what would be the best way to protect yourself from animal attacks?

3. What was the greatest benefit when people began
farming
?

4. The
Neolithic

Age
, also called the
New

Stone

Age
, began with what discovery?

Traders
looked for popular items like
obsidian
and
flint
.
The growth of trade allowed people to make use of more
resources
.
It also brought them into contact with people from distant places.
These contacts helped spread ideas and knowledge throughout the
ancient
world.
Developing New Jobs
Having a stable food supply allowed people to develop new kinds of jobs.
Besides farmers, there were
weavers
,
basket

makers
,
toolmakers
, and
traders
.
Neolithic people didn't merely want to survive...they wanted to make life more beautiful.
Establishing Communities
The ability to raise food by farming allowed people to settle in
permanent

shelters
.
While some people grew crops, others built houses and made tools.
Larger communities could defend themselves more easily against their enemies.
Think-Pair-Share
: What led to growing populations during the Neolithic Age?
Think-Pair-Share
: What is one cause and effect of new jobs?
