“The MSU Museum and the Department of Anthropology provide a thoroughly engaging, hands-on program that truly brings to life our “Early Humans” curriculum. The experience is onsistently regarded as one of the highlights of middle school by our young social scientists!”
—6th grade Social Studies teacher
What makes us different from our ancestors?
How can we study early humans?
The Michigan State University Museum and Department of Anthropology have teamed up to provide a hands-on program for middle school students to learn about anthropology and human evolution! MSU student ambassadors will come to your school and lead the class in hands-on activities and mini-lessons using casts of real fossil hominins. The program supports social studies and science curricula and offers a teamwork-based approach to making science and anthropology fun!
Programming is concluded for this school year. Please contact the Education Team (517-432-1472) for Fall 2019 details.
