English Timeline This interactive timeline allows you to explore the evolution of English language and literature, from the 11th century to the present day. Scroll through decade by decade to investigate the richness and diversity of our poetry and prose, as well as the many social, cultural and political strands from which our language has been woven. The timeline includes a fascinating combination of texts: Anglo Saxon tales and medieval illuminations; iconic literary manuscripts and printed texts; as well as letters, newspapers, handbills, posters, charters, speeches and campaign leaflets. Launch the interactive Flash timeline above, or explore the collections within each of the centuries below. Ancient Skull Found In China Challenges Current Evolutionary Theories Every now and then there's a new piece of evidence that shakes up what we thought we knew about the origin of our species. Take, for example, the recent excitement over the European tooth fragments, which as one paleontologist told National Geographic is probably "much ado about nothing". The latest find to puzzle researchers is a 260,000-year-old skull, known as the Dali skull, that looks remarkably similar to the earliest known remains of Homo sapiens. The problem is that the fossil is not where we would expect it to be. Archaeologists have unearthed comparable remains in Morocco, but this particular skull was found in Shaanxi, a province in northwestern China. The implication being that modern humans did not only originate from tribes in Africa but from human populations elsewhere.

What does the pancreas do? - Emma Bryce So what does this internal health coach look like? To find out, take a look at the organ and see where it lives in the body. Its prime position close to the stomach allows it to help us digest our food, with the aid of the enzymes—amylase, protease, and lipase—present in the special pancreatic juice it makes. A Visual Timeline of the Future Based on Famous Fiction by Maria Popova Proof that in the year 802701, the world will still exist. The past has a long history of imagining the future, and humanity has an equally long history of mapping time. Several months ago, I shared a link to a timeline of future events as predicted by famous novels. Italian information visualization designer Giorgia Lupi saw it on Twitter and was inspired to create an ambitious visual version for La Lettura, the Sunday literary supplement of Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera, with her design team at Accurat.

500 years before the Egyptians, an ancient civilization in Peru built incredible Pyramids The Egyptians weren’t the first to build Pyramids. An ancient civilization in America, more precisely Peru, built stunning pyramids 500 years before the Ancient Egyptians. This ancient culture is considered as the oldest ‘developed’ civilization in America, and it predates by up to 1,500 years other advanced cultures in America like the Olmec civilization in Mexico. Human Body Interactive Science IB PYP Unit of Inquiry Flippables, foldables, 3d models, experiments, research, trans-disciplinary…….all in the name of inquiry based science. This 90 page,6 week, IB PYP unit of inquiry is looking at the human body and how our organs and systems are interdependent, together with how we compare to the systems that give life to other organisms. I designed this with upper elementary and middle school ages in mind. Since I work with the International Baccalaureate, I have planned around the key concepts of form, function and connection.

Ancient Anunnaki Civilization Discovered In South Africa – This Changes History Forever! It has long been thought that the great pyramid of Giza is the most significant structure that is over 5000 years old, and the famous megalithic temples in Malta is substantial at over 3000 years old. These civilizations have also been considered among the most advanced of the ancient world. However, Michael Tellinger and Johan Heine have proven these assumptions wrong in recent years. They discovered Mozambique’s Maputo which is thought to be over 200,000 years old, and the 10,000 km-large city as a whole ranks it above all the aforementioned Earthly wonders. Impact of lifestyle choices Niru Raghuram, homeroom teacher, EtonHouse International School, Singapore This article illustrates the impact of lifestyle choices on human body systems, health and survival through an inquiry into the transdisciplinary theme of “who we are”. We began our inquiries into the “who we are” unit by reading books and watching videos related to lifestyle choices for a healthy life.

List of timelines From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This is a list of timelines currently on Wikipedia. §Types[edit] §General timelines[edit] In 1969, construction workers found an alleged 200,000-year-old antediluvian structure in Oklahoma In 19690, construction workers in Oklahoma stumbled across a structure that according to many could rewrite history. The team of workers discovered the remains of a 200,000-year-old structure. Newspaper The Oklahoma covered the story in 1969. Could Oklahoma’s “Ancient Mosaic Floor”—contianing mystery post holes—rewrite the history of not only North America but the entire planet as well? According to a newspaper report published in 1969, the structure found by construction workers in Oklahoma dates back around 200,000 years. In nearly all corners of the world have researchers and archaeologists stumbled across things they can hardly explain.

A Human Body Interactive Science IB PYP Unit of Inquiry by Susan Powers Flippables, foldables, 3d models, science experiments, research, transdisciplinary learning…….all in the name of inquiry based science. With over 170 pages, this 6 week, IB PYP unit of inquiry is looking at the human body and how our organs and systems are interdependent, together with how we compare to the systems that give life to other organisms. It is wholly differentiated with tasks marked A being more challenging than those marked B. It is suitable for grades 4-6. I have planned around the key concepts of form, function and connection.

Human Evolution 101 The discovery of Homo naledi, the newest branch on our family tree, has people talking about human evolution—and trying to remember some of the basics they’ve forgotten. Here are answers to a few common questions. Why are scientists certain that human evolution happened? For a number of reasons.
