Homo Habilis

By: Alex S., Brook, Dominic, Jordan R.

introduction
Introduction
  • Follow us on our journey to a time 1.5 million years ago as we step into the time machine and learn how the Homo Habilis lived. You will learn what they ate, wore, and where they lived and more.
dates and places o f existence
Dates and Places of Existence
  • Homo Habilis went extinct about two million years ago. They lived in the east and south of Africa. They also lived in the south of Asia near the Pacific Ocean.[2]
slide4
Food
  • Homo Habilis hunted for some of their food and they gathered other food. They ate fruit, berries, birds, nuts, leaves, roots, and eggs they found. They carved and made all of their tools to cut the meat with. They broke open the animals’ bones and ate the marrow that was in the bones. To catch their prey, they crept up on the animal, and the whole group pounced on the creature.[1]
physical appearance
Physical Appearance

The female Homo Habilis weighed around 70 lbs. and their height was an average of four to three and a half feet tall. The males were slightly taller than the female and weighed more than the female.[3]

slide6

Homo Habilis weren’t able to make fire. This species had to wait until they found something burning from natural causes such as a lightning strike. Homo Habilis had to keep a close eye on the campfire because if it went out, they didn’t know how to start it again.[4]

tools
Tools
  • Homo Habilis carved and used stones for tools. To kill animals, they used sticks and stones. They would sharpen their tools with any rock or wood they could find. To get the marrow out of the bones of their prey, they would smash the bone against something hard.[5]
daily life
Daily Life
  • Homo Habilis were gatherers. They were also hunters and scavengers. They used rocks to kill animals. They couldn’t kill a lot of animals because they were too big. Homo Habilis were the first group of early humans to create and use tools.[6]
clothing
Clothing
  • Homo Habilis didn’t wear clothing because their bodies were so hairy it already kept them warm.
shelter
Shelter
  • Homo Habilis lived in small huts made out of sticks, rocks, and mud. The rocks were used to hold the sticks in place. The mud was used to hold the rocks in place. Their huts were shaped like domes. The Homo Habilis also lived under cliffs.[7]
language
Language
  • Homo Habilis did not use words to speak. Unlike Australopithecus, they used their hands and their simple voices to communicate. [8] Homo Habilis communicated much better than Australopithecus. {[9]8]
paintings and carvings
Paintings and Carvings
  • Scientist believe that Homo Habilis didn’t do any paintings or carvings. [10]
