NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Social Science History Chapter 3: From Hunting-Gathering to Growing Food

Neo Banner

The first chapter provided insight into an early man's life, while this chapter would talk about more specific portions of people's lives. It talks about early humans and their everyday life. We would learn about hunting, gathering, and how farming came into place. The chapter also talks about how we came to know about these people. What work did early humans do, where did they live, how did their everyday work change over time? All these questions would be answered in this chapter. Moreover, the chapter would also talk about the transition from hunting to farming how humans evolved from gatherers to herders. In the end, the chapter would also briefly explain how early humans developed houses. The chapter also has the following brief points:

  • Two million years ago, people had started to perform functions that are reflected even in today's humans. These were the hunter-gatherers.
  • This chapter shows us how they lived, hunted and gathered food.
  • We also study how archaeologists have discovered tools from early times. These tools show us how early humans lived and their standard of living. Tools and weapons such as spears and arrows have been found.
  • Then humans discovered fire and the world changed for them. They could now roast meat, stay warm, and use fire to scare away wild animals.
  • Around 12,000 years ago, the earth's climate became warmer, which led to the development of grasslands. Animals like deer, antelopes, pigs etc. started increasing in number as they ate grasses and plants for their survival.
  • Humans started taming these animals and protecting them from wild animals. This is how herding started.
  • This chapter has maps which show the places where archaeologists found evidence of farming.
  • Archaeologists also found remains of old shelters where humans had started living.
