The History of Fire
Deadline: Monday, October 8, 2012 by 08:00
In spring 2012, new evidence was found in Wonderwerk Cave in South Africa that humans had possibly controlled fire approximately 1,000,000 years ago! (Please click on the tab above Chapter 1: Earliest Human Societies for a news article on this incredible finding!)
The question for this week's blog is this:
- How did early humans know how to start fire? List three possible ways that early humans may have learned how to control fire.
Hint: Watch the short video, Quest for Fire. Caveman in Trouble, by Ed Barnes for some possible answers.
