Facts About Human Evolution [12:32]


Human evolution is probably the most controversial issues within evolution.  This video goes through every major branch of our family tree and discussing all of the ‘missing links’ we’ve found, as well as their migration patterns.  It also discusses the importance of each of the major evolutionary steps that led to the evolution of homo sapiens.  The video ends discussing some of what we know about how different species hominids, including ourselves, interacted before many of them went extinct.

Discussion Questions

  • What is the Out of Africa Hypothesis?
  • Have we found any ‘missing links’ yet?  Why do we still talk about them then?
  • What were some of the most important adaptations in our family history?
  • What do you think it’d be like if there were other hominid species running around today?

Keywords: human evolution, paleo-anthropology, neanderthals, missing link
