The Great Discovery
In ancient times people lived on whatever food they could find. As the early people __increased__ in numbers, they had to wander and search for wild fruits and seeds of wild plants or hunt for small animals.
Then one of these early people __made__ a great discovery. A great genius discovered the meaning of seeds. He may have noticed that where some seeds had fallen on the ground, new plants grew. Perhaps he was __curious__ enough to put some seeds in the ground to see what would happen. No one knows how it happened, but man __discovered__ that if he put a seed into the soil it could grow into a plant which might yield hundreds or even thousands of seeds!
He was free of the need to be in a constant __search__ of his food! Early man could now __plant__ seeds in the spring and wait for them to grow.
In the fall he could gather a harvest of seeds. There would be enough to __feed__ himself and his family all through the winter, with some left over for planting when spring came.
This discovery was the beginning of __farming__ and the most important change that ever happened to people on earth.
