This great worksheet features 3 readings on the early human ancestors Australopithecus, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, Neanderthals, and Cro-Magnons.

Each short reading is followed by a set of vocabulary terms students define and a short question to help students identify key concepts. Following all of the readings is a matching in which students identify which early hominid possessed which physical trait or achievement.

This is an excellent activity for younger students or those struggling readers who need shorter readings that explain topics in simple terms. Some of the vocabulary includes artifacts, hominids, culture, homo sapiens, Paleolithic, Neolithic, and more.

An editable Google Docs version of the resource AND answer key for each section are both included for your convenience.

An excellent companion for this resource is this Early Humans and Hominids PowerPoint. Both can also be downloaded at a discount as part of the Prehistory Complete Unit Bundle!
