Human Migration Investigate the Global Journey of Humankind by Judy Dodge Cummings

About 200,000 years ago, humans arose as a species on the continent of Africa. How did they get to the rest of the world? When did they leave, why, and what did they use for transportation? Whether by bamboo raft or Boeing 747, whether to escape political persecution or because of climate change, migration is a recurring pattern throughout the human history of the world. In Human Migration: Investigate the Global Journey of Humankind, readers ages 12 to 15 retrace the paths taken by our ancestors, starting with the very first steps away from African soil. Understanding who has migrated, from where, when, and why helps us understand the shared history of humans across the world and the future that links us together. Kids discover how archaeologists, paleoanthropologists, linguists, and geneticists piece together different parts of the puzzle of ancient migration. Open-ended, inquiry-based activities and links to primary sources help readers draw inferences and analyze how these human journeys have changed where and how people live. Human Migration takes readers on a journey from our common ancestry to our shared future on an increasingly fragile planet.


Praise for Human Migration: Investigate the Global Journey of Humankind School Library Connection ...Three of the special features of the book are primary source extensions that encourage students to use their smartphones or tablets to explore resources further, vocabulary labs that help the students learn new words related to the topic, and Inquire & Investigate labs that are hands-on activities students may do to really dig deeper... Recommended National Science Teachers Association RECOMMENDS ... I highly recommend this well--written book. It covers topics in all of the sciences, from anthropology, to environmental science to biology as well as history and geography. This would be an excellent resource book for the middle school teacher.
