Item description

Human Evolution (Summary Notes) consists of a comprehensive set of Information Handouts written in clear, simple language that will help your students gain a better understanding of how humans have evolved over time – including the significance of fossil discoveries of pre-human, erect-walking primates like ‘Lucy’ and the ‘Taung Child’. Useful as both a student AND teacher reference, it includes lots of clear and easy-to-follow diagrams as well as a list of suggested flash card questions students can use for study purposes.

Human Evolution (Summary Notes) covers the following topics:

  • classification of humans into taxonomic groups

  • features of mammals, primates and apes

  • classification of apes

  • important fossil discoveries: Lucy and the Taung Child

  • evolution of characteristics associated with the transition from pre-human to human species, including bipedalism, introduction of meat to the diet and increased brain capacity leading to behavioural changes

  • features of major ‘Homo’ species, such as H. habilis, H. erectus and H. neanderthalensis

  • Africa as the ‘cradle of humanity’

  • change in lifestyle of modern humans from that of hunter-gatherer to farming/agriculture

  • differences between biological, cultural and technological evolution and

  • evidence of migration of modern humans, including the use of mtDNA to track this migration.

Human Evolution (Summary Notes) contains a black-and-white version of the handouts, which can be printed for students, as well as a full colour display version that looks great on the big screen and can be used to facilitate good class discussion.

I hope you and your students find this product useful and that you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
