Description: This resource from PBS focuses on human evolution in a format aimed at kids but easily adapted to a classroom of any kind. A classroom activity (available as Shockwave or text only formats) describes the steps in human evolution (physically and behaviorally) from Ardipithecus ramidus about 4.4 million years ago to our current state as modern Homo sapiens. There are also brief summaries of the importance of Lucy, fossilized footprints, and the "Taung child," the first Autralopithecus specimen found.
