Video Of The Week - Are You Smarter Than A Chimp?

By Meera Dolasia on September 3, 2012


Humans believe that they are at the top of the food chain because they can outsmart any living being on this planet - While that may be true to some extent, animals, especially chimpanzees that share 99% of our DNA, are no dummies either.

In the video filmed by National Geographic, see how quickly and efficiently the chimp figures out how to get to a peanut that lies at the bottom of a fixed clear tube. But before you watch it, see if you can figure out the solution and prove to yourself and the world that you are . . . . . . Smarter than a chimp!

                      I'm in 3rd grade and learning about DNA and this perfectly ties into our unit of studies.

                        I'm in 5th grade now and I remember in 3rd grade we didn't learn anything about DNA. We just learned about other random stuff...

                          Oh my gosh I haven't learned about DNA let and I'm way past third grade! Wait, what did I learn in third grade science...? Heck, I don't remember!

                            All I remember was that we had some tadpoles we raised in a special case in the classroom. Actually, I don't think I had science in third grade, because I remember wondering when they were actually going to start having science classes.

                            Good for you! I remember when I was your age, we learned about calculating the likeliness of dominant or recessive traits through Punnett squares. Are you learning that? :)

                              DNA is awesome.
