I would put a phone,a skateboard and also a knife. The phone shows our means of communication. The skateboard would show how we get from one place to another. The knife would show how we have changed through time.

A tool that is a sharp rock........... it shows how huminods killed prey and will tell them that we knew how too get food.
A gun can accomlish a goal by showing how we killed prey in these days and how we defended ourself.
A pencil can accomplish a goal by showing how we write and how we may tell something too somebody else.............. :D

I would say a map, an engine (of any vehicle) and a candle. The map shows directions which is handy to find a place. The engine is the main object for a vehicle to be able to move(travel), and it can be experimented or broken to pieces to make another tool. The candle sometimes has an aroma, sometimes not but either way it gives light, and light is so useful( especially during the night) so you feel safer in a way.

A screwdriver can accomplish a task by srewing nails and holding 2 pieces or more,
this tool helps with construction or anything else that has to do with screwdrivers.
A thermometer can accomplish a task by measuring Farenheit and Celsius, this tool helps the scientist record how hot the ground is or anything else to do with thermometers.
A phone can accomplish a task by calling for emergencys or for other things, this tool helps us to call, text and much more things.

I would put a knife to show how people would cut food in old days and how different recources were used to make them. A mini car to show what kind of vehicle is used the most and how we got around to places. The last thing i would put would be a Book with facts to show how humans in the present studied in one way, which was reading important facts about things.

Hairbrush: Its important to use a hairbrush because then your hair will be all ugly, like a cotton candy, and you will have knots all over you hair.
Google: Its important to use Google.com because, if you don't have google, they tell you to do a project in --------, you will need Google to fin d information about it.
Coat: When you are in the snow, or in a very cold place, you need a coat, because if you don't have one, you will be freezing and you can freeze and die.

braces- they help us get straiter teeth, it helps us beacuse with bad teeth we aren't able to eat, it shows people in the future how we get our teeth straight teeth, now we don't have to pull out bad teeth

watches- they tell us time wherever we go when we are wearing them, it shows people in the future how we know what time it is when there is no clock, it helps us know what time it is for appointments, or to make dinner exct.

ovens- ovens help cook food without having to make and tend a fire, we press a button which starts the fire then we just put the food in or on it and cook it, it shows people in the future how we easily make food
