How to Explain apes midterm to a Five-Year-Old

This summer I’ve been working with my students on an in-depth research project about our species, the chimpanzee, and our similarities and differences, the apes and the people we call chimpanzees. I wanted to do it in a way that was both fun and informative. What follows is a fun fact about the most popular animal in the world.
At the end of our school year, we are all required to take a quiz to assess our knowledge of the chimpanzee’s anatomy, physiology, and behavior. To prepare us for the exam, I made a short video of the apes practicing throwing a ball.
The question I had to ask myself was whether I loved my species more than a friend or loved my friend more than me. The answer is probably the latter. Though I was happy to see that my friends had the same question, I can’t imagine that anyone else would, either. You might think that since the study was about the apes, that it was about our species, but the only way to answer the difference is to do a self-assessment.
We don’t know all the details of this study, but based on the way some of the participants responded to the questions, the apes were probably studying for exams. I think we’re learning that it’s still hard to study for exams when you don’t want to.
Although we may have been studying for exams, the results of the study were just as valid for us. The apes in the study were as intelligent as us, but they were also smarter, more aggressive, and more motivated. After a few years of being in captivity, the chimpanzees may have seen that the way we interact with other apes in our environment is much different than they had ever seen.
All that study doesn’t mean a chimpanzee is becoming a more effective or smarter person. In fact, it’s just that they were more motivated, more successful, and more aggressive. If this is true, then why not train them at a young age? The result would be that the chimpanzee becomes a smarter and more effective person.
This is exactly what the “ape” in the title of this article is talking about. A chimpanzee could go through a period of being “more motivated, more successful, and more aggressive.” But these new behaviors would have no real meaning, just a feeling of power and control. The chimpanzee is not becoming a more intelligent or better person, its just that they have seen how the way we interact with other apes in our environment is much different than they had ever seen.
This ape is the only ape in the ape world, and she has grown up on the party island, Blackreef. In this sense she is more or less a normal chimpanzee. She has seen how the way we interact with other apes is much different than we had ever seen, and she has learned how to take advantage of this new interaction.
In this sense she is more or less a normal chimpanzee. She has seen how the way we interact with other apes is much different than we had ever seen, and she has learned how to take advantage of this new interaction. She has also learned to become a bit more aware of the fact that she is in an ape world.
This is a good idea, but it is one of those ideas that is just a little too easy to make. In fact, it seems like the idea of ape interaction with other apes is pretty much the same as interacting with a human. Not because it is the same, but because we are using the same words to describe the interaction. We are just talking about them in a slightly different way.
