This preview shows page 1 - 3 out of 23 pages.

I did most of this with a voice recognition program, so some of the terms will be screwed up(correct it) I commented your name by the section that you have to do, and you can find out if it’s yours or not by clicking on it to show you which passage is yours. Remember to do a good job, since it’s all a group effort! After you’re done with your terms, resolve your comment. Any people who haven’t resolved their comments will be kicked from the document at 6:00 a.m. October 6th.If you see a term that does not include pertinent information, feel free to add information to others’ terms.Make sure to bold the terms, and get information not just from google, but also from the book to ensure it pertains to what we’re studying!Good Luck Everyone!Dates:printing press 1439 Protestant Reformation 1517 Jamestown 1607American Revolutionary war 1775 to 1783events and people:Chapter 1“Out of Africa” theory-All humans came from Africa and moved out to follow animals ( evolvedinto different species)“Multiregional” theory- Africa was not the only place that had humans Bering Strait land bridge- Believed that migrants came into Americans on this land bridge Clovis people- Migrants from Mongolian stock related to modern day SiberiaIncas- Largest empire in the Americas at 2000 miles long.
