Boys, Girls and Chimps

This Science upd8 activity draws on research which shows that young female chimps learn survival skills faster and more effectively than males.

Their sex-based learning differences are similar to those of humans! In this activity students look at research evidence and decide whether learning differences are the result of inherited or environmental differences, or both.
