Smithsonian Institute: Zoo Labs

Taking a trip to the zoo this summer? Take your trip to the next level and become a scientist! Using these inquiry-based experiments, students can observe primates. There are five labs that explore primates’ locomotion, communication, mother-infant interaction, general behavior, and dominance and submissive behavior. By following the step-by-step procedure in the lab, students can make conclusions about how the primate moves, communicates, and interact with other members.
