Humans in the Stone Age
First, review the definitions of “Paleolithic” and “Neolithic” and the main features of each period in human history. Then reflect on how society changes when people go from hunting and gathering to agriculture. Then list one advantage and one disadvantage of how people lived in the Paleolithic and the Neolithic periods. In a concluding few sentences explain how we know the advantages/disadvantages you mentioned; are the sources human skeletons? Archaeology? Written descriptions?
In response to your peers: Referencing the advantage or disadvantage that your classmate described, do you think it would be easier to farm and manage livestock or to be a hunter or gatherer?
