Homo Habilis, Cro-Magnon, Neandertal, these
are some of the forms early man took. Some scientists believe that
man in some form began about 3 million years ago. Unlike what the
movies show, Early man did not live at the same time as the
dinosaurs. Dinosaurs died out about 65 million years
In your study of early man there are going
to be many new terms and words for you to learn. Here are four
very important vocabulary words to start you out.
Hominids is a kind of
slang term among scientists. It means mankind and anything that
looks and acts like mankind.
Fossils are remains of living things (plants, animals,
people) that have been turned into stone or have left an impression in
the stone. Anything that man has made is not a fossil.
Artifacts are remains of things that were made, not remains
of living things.
Hunter/gatherer refers to how a group of people
get their food. They find it growing wild or hunt and fish for
it. They do not grow any food.
