Introduction

 

Dates/ Daily life: 10,000 years after the ice age ended and the climate got warmer, plant life flourished and larger animals died out, and were replaced by forest dwelling animals along with a new type of Modern Humans. The Modern Humans made many advances in hunting and gathering. They were able to find out where the big game came from, and so they soon sheltered near the creatures and began hunting and farming. Their daily lives involved hunting, planting, gathering, and making homes. (1)Slide3

Where they lived

Modern Humans lived in many different places.

T

hese places

involved the grass lands of Africa and Australia, the forest of South America, the grasslands of Australia, the glaciers of Greenland and Alaska, and the deserts of Mexico,

etc.

They

also migrated from place to place until they settled and lived their lives. (2) Slide4

Shelter

Modern

Humans’

shelters were made from

bricks,

which consisted of mud and straw, and the roofs were thatched from

straw,

which was covered in mud. The houses were multiple stories, two or three at the most. Rush mats covered the rough earthen floor. Along with houses, courtyards, shrines, and granaries, store houses were built

. (3) Slide5

Food

 

Modern

Humans were

the

first farmers, but life still made farming difficult. So most of the food they ate was food they gathered or hunted. They collected wild grain, berries, nuts, and roots. From the grain, they used mortar and pestle to make flour that they then baked into hard, flat bread. Since Modern Humans had many techniques for hunting

(fish

traps,

dams

,

bows

and

arrows

, and canoes), they had a plentiful supply of meat. Besides these contraptions, they took wolf pups and trained them to help them on the hunts.

(4)

 Slide6

Tools

Modern

Humans used tools such

as stone axes—some with wooden handles,

knives, spears, harpoons, sharp

stone-tipped

arrows, and wooden bows. All of these things were made by

Modern Humans

.

(5)

 Slide7

Fire

The

Modern Humans would make fire with a stick(tinder) and a stone(flint).The

Modern Humans

would use the fire to cook,

to provide

heat and for light, and to make

jewelry

shine. They would have to use special tools to make fire. The fire would protect them from dangerous animals, but when there was rain, the rain would extinguish the fire

. (6)Slide8
Religion

 Modern

Humans buried their dead. There is proof. Peter Beaumont found an infant buried in a cave, and the skeleton was

one hundred

percent complete!

(6)

Usually

priests were group leaders of the

Modern

Humans. They organized daily worship at the shrines and also held ceremonies and rituals

. (7) Slide9

Communication

Modern Humans communicated through cave

paintings; they

also had a spoken language

.(8) Slide10
Clothing

During

the sweltering hot days of

summer,

the Modern Humans had to put away their winter clothing and take out their looms for

making cloth. When the cloth was made, they would dye the cloth in different shades, such as grey, brown, and black. (9)

Modern

Humans used many materials for their clothing, including cattle and goat skins. They also used sheep’s wool. But, back then goats, cattle, sheep were wild, so the Moderns Humans had to tame and raise the babies they took from the mother goat and sheep.

After a few years, goats and cattle were killed for their meat and skins, and sheep were sheered yearly for their warm fleece coats. (9)Slide11

Art

Modern

Humans made

jewelry. They

also created

pottery,

and they fired it to give it a custom strength. They also created little statues carved from ivory or bones

. (10)

 Slide12

Conclusion/Fun facts

All

in all, Modern Humans were interesting to learn

about,

and we hope you had as much fun learning about them

as

we did telling you. One fun fact is that when compared to Homo Sapiens, Neanderthals, Homo Erectus, and Homo

Habilis

,

Modern

Humans had the

largest

brains

. Our second fun fact is that Modern Humans actually aren’t that different from humans today!

(11)

 Slide13

QuestionsWhich human group has the largest brain?

How complete was the baby Modern Human skeleton found in the cave?

What aspects of the Modern Humans led them to being so successful?Slide14

Answers1. Yes, Modern Humans had the largest brain.

2. The baby was 100% completed!

3. The Modern Humans were such a success was because they farmed and worked together.Slide15
