In our last lesson, we learnt about what a GIST is. A GIST is a summary using around 20 words or less, using keywords and a few of our own words too. We also took out keywords. In that lesson we worked with a partner, I worked with Tom. Here is what I did, and the link: http://leesclassroom.global2.vic.edu.au/2017/06/14/gist-lesson/

1st keywords: Evidence, humans, catching, 40,000 years, archaeological, fish bones, cave painting, sea foods, important and mans diet.

1st GIST: Evidence shows humans have been catching fish for 40,000 years, and evidence reveals seafood is important for a prehistoric mans diet.
