The earliest humans probably lived in Africa.They spread to the rest of the world over the next tens of thousands of years as they hunted and gathered food to survive.2
Getting Food3Without becoming food!
UghMe soHungry!5Groups of related families united in bands to collect roots, nuts, fruits and seeds. They also hunted together. By co-operating together they met their basic needs for food, clothing and shelter.
6The animals they killed provided meat for food, bones for tools, and hides for clothing.
They set up seasonal camps in caves or rock shelters wherever the animals were plentiful.8Bands migrated when food (plants or animals) became scarce in one location.
Were outta here!
Yaba-daba-doo!9Spreading Through the World

11Ice AgeAbout 35,000 years agoIce sheets covered about 1/3 of the earthResultocean level lower & land bridges made migration to various parts of worldpossible12
And it made a cool movie too13Early Culturesand Societies14People in different parts of the world gradually developed their own cultures (way of life). As bands grew larger, their organization and interactions within the group changed. Band members now performed different tasks (division of labor) and took on different roles according to their abilities and the groups needs.15
