Its approximate date of 800,000 comes from the fact that the fossils lie below a magnetic change point. maricopa.edu/anthro/exploratorium/hominid_journey/This site, with great graphics, touches upon just about all of the major topics of human evolution.
The sediments above have a magnetism similar to that of today's Earth, but the sediments below have a reversed magnetism, that is the "north" recorded by the sediments is actually "south" today.

Using the National Science Education Standards, teachers and researchers need to become partners to produce stimulating materials for classroom use --and even bring back living organisms into the classroom for teaching evolution, advocated Brad Williamson, Kansas high school biology teacher .

The new laboratory discoveries stem partly from more careful analytical techniques (e.g.OUR FAMILY TREE: NEWS FROM THE FIELD Two new species joined the family tree between 19: Homo antecessor from Spain and Australopithecus garhi from Ethiopia. Includes a number of links that students will find useful.Homo antecessor: A New Species From Europe Homo antecessor is based on fragments from the TD6 level at the Gran Dolina cave, near Atapuerca, Spain. edu:8001/vwsu/gened/learn-modules/top_longfor/A good introductory page with abundant information presented clearly.At the end of a day or after a week sifting, the archaeologist's bone bag bears little resemblance to the reconstructed skull on the newsroom table.Only after months of preparatory work --finding which pieces join together and modeling the missing parts-- does the skull begin to take shape.
