Fact Versus Myth (BrainPOP)

1. Watch this movie = https://www.brainpop.com/science/paleontologyandanthropology/humanevolution/ 2. Complete this worksheet with the DRAWING tool 3. Explain your answers "Based on evidence from the fossil record, they think that the first hominins split off from early apes between six and eight million years ago. Hominins are a group of primates that include humans and pre-human ancestors. The oldest-found hominin appears to be Sahelanthropus tchadensis. Only an incomplete skull has been found, but it has enough in common with later hominins for scientists to be pretty certain it’s a human ancestor. The several known species of Australopithecines had more human traits, like bigger brains. Many of them were bipedal, too. That’s how evolution works: animals with advantageous traits survive long enough to breed and pass those traits on. About two and a half million years ago, various species of Homo hominins began to appear."
