Today’s journal prompt was about the ways in which we are smarter than animals, and the ways in which they are smarter than us.
Here are some results from my 7th and 8th graders:
WAYS HUMANS ARE SMARTER:
WAYS ANIMALS ARE SMARTER:
“Animals don’t judge each other.”
“My dog knows what I’m saying when I ask him to take a walk. But I don’t know what he is saying when he is barking. Maybe we just don’t understand their language.”
“One thing that is better about animals than humans is disagreements; humans fight and get mad at random pointless stuff and come up with stupid things like racism and sexism, animals don’t.”
Out of the mouths of my awkward angels.
