Description

Glimpse into the life of a hunter-gather. Do some research, put together a menu of the finest foraged foods.

BIG HISTORY PROJECT / UNIT 6 A HUNTER-GATHERER MENU 1 6 A HUNTER-‐GATHERER MENU What’s for dinner? Introduction Think about how we modern humans get our meals. Where do we go and what “tools” do we use? How did our hunter-‐gatherer ancestors bag their food? For this activity, imagine dinner at an encampment of foragers and pretend that the hunter-‐gather “chefs” are putting on a real feast this night. Some details about your assignment Do some research on foraging diets and the ways that various items were hunted or gathered. Then use the sheet on the next page to fill out your own menu. As you decide which food items to serve, you may want to consider recent foraging societies that still depend on foraging for all of their food and older, Paleolithic humans. Here are a few places to use to start your research but take the time to find other sources: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=why-‐paleo-‐diet-‐half-‐baked-‐how-‐ hunter-‐gatherer-‐really-‐eat http://humanorigins.si.edu/resources/multimedia/videos/meet-‐our-‐scientist-‐ briana-‐pobiner-‐dietary-‐detective http://humanorigins.si.edu/human-‐characteristics/tools-‐food http://humanorigins.si.edu/research/whats-‐hot/australopithecus-‐sediba-‐was-‐vegetarian Start by selecting a name and location for your imaginary restaurant and a date in the past for serving this menu. Consider how the geography and climate of the region will affect the types of food that are available and how the date of your imaginary meal may determine what tools and techniques were used to obtain the food. Then identify the food items being served. Say where each food item came from (probably an area fairly close to the location of your “restaurant”) and how it was obtained. Don’t worry about pricing the different menu options!
