Educator Resources for Human Evolution

Where did we come from? That’s the subject of this BrainPop movie! Tim and Moby (and an 800-pound gorilla) will teach you about scientists’ current understanding of where humans came from. You’ll discover our relationship to other primates, and learn how the process of evolution by natural selection led to the rise of humans. You’ll meet some of our early pre-human ancestors and find out how paleontologists use fossils to link our ancestors to us. Don’t call our hominid ancestors cavemen--know your Australopithecine from your Homo erectus from your Neanderthal.
