Janef early man appearance

  1. 1. By: Jane<br />Early Man Appearance<br />
  2. 2. Introduction<br />When humans first were created they were not like they are today. Humans originally evolved from apes. Apes as you may know are in the monkey family, and walk with a hunched back, and their body is covered in hair. Humans evolved from this eventually creating what we are today. There are many different stages or periods of people that were on this planet a long time ago. These humans had so many different qualities about them, and appearance is a major part of history about them. The six main groups that have been discovered are the Australopithecus afarensis, Homo habilis, Homo Erectus, Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis, Homo sapiens Cro-Magnon, and Homo sapiens sapiens. These groups have amazed us in many different ways, but I personally think that the way they dress, and their appearance is the most interesting to study. <br />evolution of man<br />Modern Human Skull<br />Ape Like Skull<br />
  3. 3. Australopithecus afarensis<br /><ul><li>They looked more ape-like than human like
  4. 4. They had a tiny brain so they must have had a small head

  61. 61. Closing<br />Byebye!<br />Hominids as you can see are one of the most interesting topics! If you enjoy learning about the past and how we became who we are today then I suggest that you learn more about them. The early man was a fun and interesting topic to study because now I have a clear understanding of why I look this way, and how we evolved from apes. If you think about it, it is just truly amazing to realize that over a massive period of time we became more developed, and we learned more things. Just think what it will be like in a hundred years when they start digging us up to find out more of the history of humans! Anyways as you can see the six main hominid groups (Australopithecus afarensis, Homo habilis, Homo Erectus, Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis, Homo sapiens Cro-Magnon, and Homo sapiens sapiens) have wonderful features about their appearance, and clothing. Overall these wonderful groups of hominids are extrodinary to study!<br />Hominid Model<br />Hominids from all around the world<br />
