The Nomadic Civilization (Hunter Gatherers)
Nov 13, 2020
Hey students, hope you're doing very good during this time. I wanted to create this video for a couple of reasons. One. The main reason I want to create it is to give you kind of an outline of what we're going to be doing today for a wireless one was because it can be complicated but I wanted to create this video just to kind of help you out and just simplify it. So we're going to be doing today is we're going to be talking about the nomadic civilization and how their lifestyle was back then. So going further into that, I mean, we're going to talk about three main things and you will see these in the upcoming PowerPoint and some videos and articles that you will be reading. And what I'm talking about is their use of weapons during that time, the shelter that they used. And the importance of fire. And those are the three key ideas that I think you would need to take away from this lesson. And what I mean by that is the fire. So they're important. And those are the three main things as well that we still use today. And for the fire they were, it was very symbolic thing during that time. And what I mean by that is they actually use it as medicine, and they would be able to cook food with that. And we still use that today. So also the shelter during that, we're going to see kind of how it's evolved over time from back then. And how it's evolved thousands of years later and see what it is right now in 2020. And the last thing is we're going to see the nomadic weapons. And we're also kind of see how that's also evolved as well as what we do with the shelter. But I kind of wanted to focus on the weapons and just see how they use weapons for not only farming, but for hunting as well. So what we could be doing is that you will need to get in groups of four and this will be a very interactive lesson, okay? So I'm okay if you're talking just I would like it if it's on if it's about the lesson for today. But like I said, it's going to be very interactive. I want you to talk amongst your group about what's going on because the more talk can not hear about the lesson, the more you are going to learn. So what we're going to be doing today is there will be a PowerPoint that will be on your group's laptops, okay? And in it that you will go through go through some lessons. And also, there will be three links in the lesson that you will need to click on. And one of them is from ancient EU. And that will kind of give you a brief understanding of the tools that were used with hunter gatherers. And the nomadic civilizations. The second link will be a YouTube video and it's going to be talking about the importance of fire and the significance and the symbolic the symbolic idea of fire during the time. And the last one will be, it will be also a YouTube video and it'll show how shelter has evolved from back then today. And so that was kind of the three main points I wanted to touch on. So here's what I would do. I will pass out each group, I will pass out a couple laptops per group. And I would say they think group to four, I will pass up two laptops and y'all will be able to share laptops with each other. But y'all need to stay on track with each other rather than just one half of the group goes ahead and one half stays back. If y'all are on task with each other and you're on the same pace, that would be the best way. Also, there's any time that you need help, I am always available. I will be walking around the class the entire time. So if you have any questions, let me know. And I'll be helping you out. But after the lesson for today, you will take the quiz. That's why I say it's very important to stay on task. So you know what you're reading and when you know you're going to watch. And all of the questions I can guarantee you this will be coming from the lesson, okay? So as long as you're paying attention to the lesson, you should have no problem with the quiz, okay? And after the quiz, that's going to lead to our think sheet, okay? And what I think she is like, maybe thinking she, I know, it's crazy. But what I think she is, I put 6 questions on there and it's not really interactive. You will need to do this independently. So by yourself, okay? This will be after you take your quiz, it'll be a separate grade. It will not go with your quiz, great, okay? But what it is is there's 6 questions. And it's just going to make you think, you need to think really hard about this, okay? You don't just need to put down just some basic answer. It involves, it involves a lot of thought into it. And so some of the questions may be easier than the other ones, but still. So when I require you is at least three to four sentences, okay? And when I say at least, I mean, I want you to strive for more. For more than that, okay? And also, I may include some bonus points as well. Depending on how well you write your answers. If you just give me some basic answers, if you just give me at least just if you just give me three sentences. For the entire thing, then I may just give you the basic grade. I mean, but if you actually put some thought into it and you actually just try your best, I'm going to reward you for that. Because that's what the lesson is all about for the think sheet. I want you to strive to think as hard as you can because it's going to take a lot of thought, okay? So what I want to do, what I want to learn for y'all today. So the objective for today was that y'all will be able to show and explain the use of nomadic weapons. And the significance of our and the type of shelter they lived in. And also the tools that they use during that time period. And y'all can I believe that at the end of the day, y'all will be able to write about nomadic civilizations and the use of tools, weapons, fires, and the shelter that the views during the top period. And I also believe that y'all will be able to compare weapons and shelter in the use of fire from van to now. There is some very similarities during that time, but there's also some differences. And that will be also explained. And one of the in the article that y'all will read in the PowerPoint. So as you all get done with that, y'all will be good for the day. So just remember for a couple things, okay? So one. I just want you to try your best on the think sheet, okay? That's the main point. And also on the quiz, if you if you read and you learn and you listen and you're on task with the PowerPoint and the article and the two YouTube videos in there, you will do very, very well on the quiz. I can guarantee you it. Because everything on the quiz is from the lesson, okay? And once you get that done, you will then go into think sheet. And like I said, strive to do your best for not just this assignment, but for everything you do, okay? I want you to do your best, think outside the box. Because I like to see a variety of answers. There's no just one correct answer. You can put as many answers that you want. I think one of the questions is about excuse me. One of the questions is about the development of tools. So you could in that question, let's just say, you could answer the question and you could also kind of go and explain what the similarities are comparing back then to now. Also the same thing with fire. I have a question about the significance and importance in the symbolic of fire. Because back then, they used it for a lot more reasons than we do today. They used it for medicine. See, we don't really use it so much as for medicine today because we have prescriptions and such, okay? But if you think outside of the box, you will be rewarded. I promise you, you will do a very good job. If you can just think outside the box and do absolute best. But after you get done with the think sheet, you'll be done with the day. So have fun, remember getting groups of four, and then after the after the lesson is over with the PowerPoint, you will take your quiz and you will work on the think sheet by yourself, okay? Good luck. And now y'all do amazing. Have a good day, all.
