Ask Mr. Donn
Did early man live at the same time as dinosaurs? No! Dinosaurs died out about 65 million years ago. The first hominids (human-like primates) did not appear until 3.6 million years ago. This is not to say that early man had it easy. They did have to face saber-toothed tigers, cave lions, and woolly mammoths! (But not dinosaurs!) Early man did not develop agriculture or a written language. They were hunters and gatherers. Scientists have found fossils and artifacts which reveal traces of their life.
Here are some interactive questions we created about Early Humans that we believe you might find on a homework assignment, a unit quiz or an exam. Test yourself. See if you remember the answer (or guess the answer), then click the "Show Answer" button under each question to see if you are right!
