Journal Entry: Pretend that you are a member of an early hominid group (Australopithecine, Homo Habilis, Homo Erectus, or Neanderthal). Write a journal entry using a first person narrative style describing what a typical day is like for you. Answer the following questions in the body of your journal entry:
• In what environment do you live in?
• How do you hunt/gather food? What do you eat?
• Where do you sleep? What kind of shelter do you have?
• How do you stay warm? Do you have clothing?
• What kind of technology do you have?
• What is your community like? Who are the members? What role do you play?
You are writing this journal entry as a character. What kind of character will you play? What is your name? Are you a hunter? A mother? A child? Do you wonder about the world around you? Are you afraid of something? Include this and other information in your journal entry as well.
Comes with a graphic organizer.
