Students will be plotting the general distribution of major fossil hominid taxa on an interactive world map and/or plotting color coded “push pins” on their online world map along with the teacher and projector in the front of the classroom. Students discuss/debate hypotheses about the origin and movement of prehuman ancestors, and weigh the significance of the data to determine which hypothesis best explains the data. They will later watch an hour Nation Geographic movie as another overview of the fossils themselves. This activity integrates skills learned in geography with science concepts relating to the origin of hominids and a likely migration route from that point of origin. This clarifies the importance of inference based on the analysis of patterns in data and the tentative nature of scientific inquiry.
