Resource Description

Are Humans Able to Measure Animal Cognitive Capacities?

This activity follows the inquiry-based-learning model. Initially, students are introduced to the relatively new concept of high levels of cognitive capacity in other animals. They are then encouraged to investigate scientific developments dispelling the idea that humans are the only cognitively developed animals on the planet. Choosing a species of personal interest, students delve into the research around this species and their capabilities. Students publish a 2-page written and visual account of their findings that forms part of a group booklet on animal capacities for use in a primary school library.
