Our Early Humans lesson plan introduces students to the origins, movements, lifestyle, and characteristics of early humans. The characteristics of early humans, the spread of humans across the planet, and other interesting facts are discussed. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity in order to create ‚ÄúCave Paintings‚Äù depicting life today, which future humans would be able to understand. Students are also asked to answer questions based on the lesson material, testing their understanding.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the origins of early humans, list characteristics of early humans, and explain how early humans survived and spread across the world.
