Delivered partly as a formal lecture, this session provides students with a rare opportunity to examine early hominid tools. These indicators of cultural evolution are discussed in relation to the Museumís replica skull collection.
In facilitated discussion, students are challenged to identify biological changes that have taken place over sequential time periods and to cite associated scientific evidence.
This programme directly addresses NCEA Level 3 Biology Achievement Standard 90719 Describe trends in human evolution.
We recommend combining this session with a New Zealand Speciation session.
This programme is assisted by LEOTC, funded by the Ministry of Education.
