CHAPTER 1 PRACTICE TEST: MASTERY TEST A WORLD HISTORY
PART A • (Culture, History, Civilization) is the record of past events. • First-hand, or eyewitness, accounts of an event are (primary, secondary, false) sources. • (Archaeologists, Anthropologists, Historians) are scientists who study the beginnings and the human behavior. • The time before humans left written records is our (history, civilization, prehistory).
PART A • (Farming, Bronze, Fire) made it possible for early humans to live in one place. • We learn about the lives of prehistoric people from drawings in (bronze, caves, riverbeds). • When we study the history of the whole human race, we are studying the history of (civilization, humanity, culture).
PART A • Scientists use radiocarbon dating to determine the (size, age, location) of an artifact. • Scholars believe that Stone-Age humans may have used Stonehenge to predict (rain, eclipses, embers). • The first period of human prehistory is the (Stone Age, New Age, Bronze Age).
PART B • Nomads • Eclipse • Stone Age • Artifact • Culture • Civilization • Embers • Obsidian • Pottery • Diary • E: people who move from place to place • F: the hiding of the sun by the moon • H: the earliest period of prehistory • A: something made by a human being • G: the customs, values, and language of a people • B: a people who have cities and government • C: the glowing remains of a fire • D: a volcanic glass • J: what early humans made in order to store food • I: a daily record of what happens to a person
PART C • We study history to learn from what happened in the past. • A personal letter is an example of a secondary source. • All historians explain, or interpret, events in the same way. • To keep track of time, humans use calendars based on events. • Sometimes, archaeologists must guess the age of an artifact. • The discovery of fire did not have much impact on early human life. • Prehistoric humans could control their food supply for farming. • Humans discovered that tools made of stone were stronger than tools made of bronze. • Prehistoric people were nomads who moved from place to place searching artifacts. • The first civilizations came about because of the invention of farming. • T • F • F • T • T • F • T • F • F • T
PART D • Who tries to answer five questions that begin with W about an event? • What are tools and weapons people left behind examples of? • What discovery helped early humans to warm themselves? • What famous monument stands near Salisbury, England? • Bronze is a hard metal made out of copper and what? • What kind of scientist studies the remains of early people? • What is the record of conditions and events in the past called? • What were the prehistoric people looking for when they moved from place to place? • In which age did the discovery of fire take place? • History gives us a sense of being connected to what? • Historians • Artifacts • Fire • Stonehenge • Tin • Archaeologist • History • Food • Stone age • The past, the global community, people, or our roots
