The origins in human begins
Some species of primates slowly began to evolve and walk upright on two
legs. This helped them adapt better to their new environment since they
could travel longer distances to find water and food.
Paleontologists have found fossils of these early hominids with features
similar to those of modern humans.
The process of hominization
Around six million years ago, the Earth underwent a period of climate
change. Many forests disappeared in eastern Africa and turned into dry
The larynx also

them to develop
A straight spinal column, long
leg bones and a wide pelvis
are typical of hominids that
walked on two feet.
Utensils and the remains of fires appear

their hands and allowed opposable thumbs
to evolve. This increased their manual skills
and allowed them to create tools.
