Today we began Unit 1:Chapter 1: Big Geography and the Peopling of the Earth.

We discussed the terms homids, homo sapiens, homo sapien sapiens, paleontologists, paleoclimatologists,anthropologists, and archaeologists, as well as the abreviations B.C.E (Before Common Era) and C.E. (Common Era).

We also discussed the three different periods of the Stone Age. The Paleolithic (Early Age), The Mesolithic (Middle Time or Transition Age), and the Neolithic (New Age).

Tonight the students need to define ALL bold words in chapter 1 and review today's lesson. *hint hint wink wink*

The homework will be graded as homework/participation worth 10 pts.

Students also need to answer the questions sent via e-mail (school e-mail) to the CNN Student News.
