Comparing and Contrasting Neanderthals and Modern Humans


Comparing and Contrasting Neanderthals and Modern Human To begin, let's continue to add to our Neanderthal and Modern Humans - Venn Diagram (located in your Social Studies Google Classroom) as we take notes on how Neanderthals are both similar and different compared to modern humans. You may reference the excerpts of text from yesterday's Blog, as well as refer to the venn diagram below. 
Video: The Neanderthals  Now we are going to continue to learn about the lives of the Neanderthals, as we add to our Neanderthal and Modern Humans - Venn Diagram, by watching watching excerpts of the Discovery Channel documentary Neanderthal.    



Study for Early Humans Quiz  Tomorrow you will be taking a short quiz on 'Early Humans,' which will test your understanding of how we study and make sense of the ancient past, as well as what we know about the lives of our early human ancestors and how they changed over time. The quiz will be primarily multiple choice, and may include a few short response questions as well. Please review your Social Studies assignments, as well as the Social Studies Blog entries from the past two weeks in order to be prepared.

Homework  Complete the Neanderthal and Modern Humans - Venn Diagram, which is due Friday, August 28, and study for your Early Humans Quiz, which we will have tomorrow, August 27
