1) Discuss what evolution is in terms of physical anthropology.

2) Define evolution (using textbook and/or lecture notes)

3) Discuss what a physical anthropologist may examine/investigate in order to study evolution (e.g. population DNA) and why it is helpful for studying
evolution.

4) Find at least one outside source related to your answer for Q3 and Q4 (e.g. the genome project for DNA). Conduct original research do not use the
genome project because that example is given in class.

5) Briefly describe the source you discuss in Q5 and how is it helpful for examining/investigating evolution.

6) Choose a second subfield of anthropology (cultural linguistic or archaeology).

7) Discuss how an anthropologist in this second subfield would study evolution.

a. Remember evolution can apply to both physical and societal changes so things like language and customs can evolve just as much as bodies and brains
can.

8) Discuss what an anthropologist from your chosen subfield may examine/investigate in order to study evolution (e.g. an archaeologist may look at how
tools have changed through time and what has caused that change) and why it is helpful for studying evolution.

9) Find at least one outside source related to your answer for Q8 and Q9. Conduct original research do not use tool evolution because that example is
given in class.

10) Briefly describe the source that you describe in Q11 and how is it helpful for examining/investigating evolution.

11) Discuss how the study of evolution between physical anthropology and your chosen subfield compare and contrast.
