STONE AGE  : STONE TOOLS

Overview

                                                                                                                                                                                           students study following things from this chapter :-                   

1. Student understands the use of the stone tools ,

2. Student explores the areas were human fossils were found.    

3. Student  apprehends about the life style of stoneage people

4. Student  learns the reasons behinde the use of stone tools

      

                                                                                        

   

           

 

Preparation

Teacher's activity

Set induction -:

Students in which period homo habalis and homo sapiens were living.

linking statement-:

The Stone Age was a broadb prehistoric period during which stone was widely used to make implements with an edge, a point, or a percussion surface. The period lasted roughly 3.4 million years, and ended between 8700 BCE (or BC) and 2000 BCE with the advent f metalworking.

Statement of aim -:

Today we  are going to study about the stone age period : stone tools

PRESENTATION -:

Teacher speaks about the following points-

The  percussion techniques

This technique involves beating or striking one large pebble against another to obtain stone flakes.

*Homo erectus was using different tools for differnt tasks according to the demand of the task.

*Tools like the hand axe and cleaver made by homoerectus.

*Homosapeins brought about revolution in the technique of making tools

*fOSSILS OS A HUMAN SKULL AND COLLAR BONE OF AN OLD STONE AGE WOMEN WERE  found on the bank of the river narmada.

 

 

Students are performing activity of how to use the stone tools.

Early Stone Age Tools. The earliest stone tool making developed by at least 2.6 million years ago. The Early Stone Age began with the most basic stone implements made by early humans. These Oldo wan toolkits include hammer stones, stone cores, and sharp stone flakes.

Students are writing down  about the stone age period

according to their understanding

 stone tool is, in the most general sense, any tool made either partially or entirely out of stone. Although stone tool-dependent societies and cultures still exist today, most stone tools are associated with prehistoric, particularly Stone Age cultures that have become extinct. Archaeologists often study such prehistoric societies, and refer to the study of stone tools as lithic analysisEthnoarchaeology has been a valuable research field in order to further the understanding and cultural implications of stone tool use and manufacture.[1]

Stone has been used to make a wide variety of different tools throughout history, including arrow heads, spearpoints and querns. Stone tools may be made of either ground stone or chipped stone, and a person who creates tools out of the latter is known as a flintknapper.

Chipped stone tools are made from cryptocrystalline materials such as chert or flintradiolaritechalcedonyobsidianbasalt, and quartzite via a process known as lithic reduction. One simple form of reduction is to strike stone flakes from a nucleus (core) of material using a hammerstone or similar hard hammer fabricator. If the goal of the reduction strategy is to produce flakes, the remnant lithic core may be discarded once it has become too small to use. In some strategies, however, a flintknapper reduces the core to a rough unifacial or bifacial preform, which is further reduced using soft hammer flaking techniques or by pressure flaking the edges.

More complex forms of reduction include the production of highly standardized blades, which can then be fashioned into a variety of tools such as scrapersknivessicklesand microliths. In general terms, chipped stone tools are nearly ubiquitous in all pre-metal-using societies because they are easily manufactured, the tool stone is usually plentiful, and they are easy to transport and sharpen.
