How People Got Here
By: C Crawley
Have you ever wanted to know how people got here. I think that they crossed on the Bering strait. But thats not the only thing you’ll learn. First you will learn how they got here. Second I’ll tell you why they came here. Then you will learn where did they come from. Imagine going through what they did.
How did they get here? Most scientists think that they crossed the Bering sea. Because when they came over 12,000 years ago, it was frozen over and was called the Bering strait. But not all scientists agree. Some scientists think that they crossed in reed boats. Even some Native Americans say there was a “Great Flood”. When they crossed the Bering strait the ocean levels were much lower. That in my opinion is how people got to North America.
Why did they come here? They came here hunting large game. Actually they did not mean to come here they were just following their food. The big game they were hunting Moose, Elk, Deer, and Buffalo. These people were called “nomadic hunters” meaning they moved where their food moved. That is why they came to the americas.
Where did they come from? Scientists don’t agree on where they came from. But they do agree that they did come from somewhere in Asia. About 50 different languages were spoken throughout North America. Scientists have found bones that date back 12,000 years ago, supposedly where the Bering Strait was. That is where the first Native Americans came from.
I told you a lot about how people got here. I hope you learned all about the past and what effect it had on today. I told you about how they got here. When they got here. And why they came here. Imagine what you would feel like when it’s -15 below zero and your crossed a frozen tundra. I hope you learned a lot.
