Description:

In this lesson students describe, measure and compare cranial casts from contemporary apes (chimpanzees and gorillas, typically), modern humans and fossil hominids (erect and bipedal forms evolutionarily separated from apes). The purpose of the lesson is for students to discover for themselves what some of the similarities and differences are that exist between these forms and to see the pattern of the gradual accumulation of traits over time leading to modern humans.
