Donald Johanson with "Lucy"
Quote:  "Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
and she's gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds, ah" Beatles lyrics to the song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"

Learning Targets:
* Human beings have developed in stages and humans have changed and adapted over time to be able to take advantage of their environment and survive.
*  The first humans lived in small communities that were focused on very basic needs—food, shelter, and safety. Early humans left no written record of their activities and thoughts. Without such records, archaeologists and anthropologists have had to rely on fossils, artifacts, and skeletal remains to develop theories about the lives of early humans.
*  Researchers have concluded that the earliest humans lived a meager hunter-gatherer existence. Only later did they develop the skills and tools necessary to engage in agriculture and to build the first civilizations.
*  Describe the nature of human life during the Old Stone Age or Paleolithic Age.
*  Scientists believe the earliest humanlike creatures lived in Africa three to four million years ago. Over the next several million years, more advanced species appeared, first Homo erectus, then Homo sapiens. From Homo sapiens, subgroups emerged. Today, all humans belong to the subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens. Each surviving species and subgroup used more advanced skills and tools than the last.
