I created this StoryMap on the evolution of humans. I find this topic really fascinating, and this engaging and visual tool will help guide the reader through the complex history of human development, including where we came from, what physical attributes we developed and when across time and our inevitably interrelatedness with the ape species. Click through millions of years of geologic time to learn more about the evolutionary path of today’s Homo sapiens.
