The First Agricultural Revolution = the transition from hunting to farming

When did it occur ? The First Agricultural Revolution started around 11,000 BC. The exact timing is uncertain and will likely remain that way as little written record has survived. China is known to have experienced the Revolution later than in the Fertile Crescent/Mesopotamia, though timing is, again, uncertain.Some people believe that it occurred in the Americas from 2000 BC up to the discovery of the Americas by the Europeans as some Native Tribes had not progressed to the First Agricultural Revolution by that time.

What did humans do? Humans during the first agricultural revolution transitioned between hunting and gathering to farming.

How did it change the way they live? It changed the way they live because they had to learn how to farm and they had to a place where they could have a farm.

Wheat was the first crop grown by humans. This is a photo of a wheat farm.

A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. They changed farming because some GMO's the chemical fertilizer can help save food to produce more. That is also one pro of GMO's a con is that the chemicals can be bad for humans.
