Replacing Missing Links in the Evolutionary Chain

Examine the evolution of various species of hominids from their earliest existence approximately 4.5 million years ago to today. In small groups, learners research one of the ten stages of hominid evolution and then create a poster and visual timeline to represent how man has changed. The focus is on physical characteristics and how they indicate who our closest ancestors might have been.
