Observing and measuring various hominins, investigating our own human evolution through accurate life size models and skulls.

Invite Earth Ed into your classroom to bring alive human evolution. Students will stand amongst life-sized hominin models and touch, measure and analyse their skulls. This 90-minute session is a hands-on investigation into the past, combined with the latest research, designed to compliment your lessons by capturing your students’ attention and deepen their learning.  

 In the hands on session, students will: 

  • actively measure characteristics of the skulls 
  • make inferences about them 
  • organise them into their ‘correct’ evolutionary order 
  • organise the life size hominin models into the correct order 
  • discuss important points about the adaptations of each species. 
  • become aware of the changing theories in the study of human evolution.
