THE BEGINNING OF TIME
-- Chapter 6 - Part III --
o the Humans lived and worked
together in tribes.
They learned to make cloth from plants
and animal hair so they could wear clothes.
And they learned to make pottery
from clay they found in the ground
so they could carry water.
The Humans learned how to make fires
so they could be warm in places
where there was snow on the ground
and so they could work by the light of the fire at night.
On special nights
the tribe gathered together
to dance dances and sing songs
in front of the fire.
Older Humans told stories
of the way their life used to be.
And still others painted pictures
on stones using different colors of earth.
At first members of the tribe
looked for fruits and grains growing wild.
But after many years they learned
to grow their own food in the earth.
Soon they could grow a lot of different plants,
and they had more food than they had ever had before.
