Episode 9: Dogs vs. Two-Year Olds, Tooting Cows, and Crickets for Breakfast

  1. As we discovered in this episode, dogs and two-year-olds, when it comes to social intelligence, dogs and two year olds have more in common that scientists originally thought.  With this in mind, carefully observe a dog and a toddler in your life.  Conduct your own experiments to see how the two react to things like treats, playfulness, and kisses from their parents or owners!
  2. In our story on tooting cows, and crickets for dinner, we learned that eating tiny insects could make a big difference in the health of our planet.  Imagine a potluck dinner party where all of the foods on the table involved edible INSECTS! Draw a picture of that table filled with buggy treats, or come up with some creepy crawly recipes of your own!
