Field Observation

Practical and real world experience with chimpanzee behavioral studies at the high school level can be very hard to come by.  Too many times a curriculum depends on expensive equipment or the inability to have access to chimpanzees that can be studied in a controlled setting.  The purpose of this lesson is to give you exposure taking quantitative behavioral data.
