Oldest Humans Found – level 2

13-06-2017 15:00

People discovered the earliest human remains in Morocco. They are around 300,000 years old, which means that they are 100,000 years older than previous discoveries. However, people may find even older remains.

The remains show how people evolved. The humans looked very similar to people today. Their brains were as big as hours, but they had a different shape. Some parts of the brains were not as developed.

These people maybe lived in caves and hunted animals.

Difficult words: remains (a person or animal’s body after death), shape (the form of something), developed (grown).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
