Animals have instincts, intelligences, and learned behaviors. If you know the appropriate ways to train an animal, you can even teach a fish tricks!
Since I signed up late for summer camp, Science was all they had.
It was an hour class, so I hoped it wouldn't be too bad,
But the Scientific Method? I have heard that all before.
The teacher said it's for an experiment she had in store.
We learned animals have different forms of intelligencies.
They also have different instincts and innate abilities.
We compared the size and wrinkles of a couple mammals' brains;
those are clues about the intelligence level it contains.
We'd be learning to teach an animal a trick she explained.
She taught us about conditioning, how animals are trained.
The quickest and most positive route is using a reward.
Not the punishments and lack of privileges we've all endured.
She told us every group would have their own fish to train.
We had to learn what fish could do and what motivate s their brain.
We designed an experiment we could do in an hour.
We would need a small hoop and fish rewards that would inspire.
The goal was our fish would swim through the hoop to the other side,
but the fish didn’t like the reward like we hypothesized.
Next we tested what color paper attracted and repelled.
The fish swam through three times, reacting to colors we held.
