Today, the students of Jupiter 4-6 read a fascinating article about how monkeys can help people with paralysing disabilities in everyday life.

The students discussed how capuchin monkeys could help their owners and then we looked at the Helping Hands company to see some of the many activities they can help with.

Some examples were: 

• turning pages 

• flipping a light switch

• retrieving dropped objects

• inserting straws into bottles

• turning on buttons/switches for remotes, phones, computers, etc.,

• repositioning limbs on a wheelchair 

• scratching itches

After we discussed the article and answered some comprehension questions, we rounded off the lesson with a key vocabulary word search. 

Great work!
