New Stone Age Venn Diagram

Create a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast the Old (Paleolithic) Stone Age to the New (Neolithic) Stone Age.

Fill in at least 3 ways that the Paleolithic and Neolithic cultures differ from each other and at least 3 ways in which they are similar.

You are suddenly told that you are going to have to move backwards in time and are given the choice of either the Paleolithic or the Neolithic Age to move into.

You will only be allowed to bring 1 other person with you, 1 item that does not require electricity or batteries,and 1 item of food that will continually replenish (but it can not be something that would need refrigeration or would spoil).

Which Era would you choose, who and what would you bring? Why?
