Now that your map is completed you may begin your quest

You will each take a specific role for your quest.  Each role must be represented.  You may choose amongst yourselves which you will take.  Understand that you are an archaeologist specializing in your chosen role and conduct yourselves accordingly.

Australopithecus

Homo Habilis

Homo Erectus

Neanderthal (Homo Sapiens)

Cro-Magnon (Homo Sapiens Sapiens)

Each of you will do your own research.  You will use only the sites available to you on this web quest.  DO NOT find your own sites!!  Remember, you are looking for the 5 "W's" and 1 "H" answers.  Be thorough in your note taking.  Be sure to include WHY your species did or did not survive.

Once research by individuals has been completed, put your results together.  Be sure when assembling your e-book to place the species in correct date order.  Maps will be included in your final book as will pictures which you may find through the web sites and download or draw yourself and scan into the program.
