Explore the anthropomorphic connection between human emotions and animal behavior—or lack thereof—with a instructional activity about Temple Grandin's book, Animals in Translation. Ninth graders continue a close reading of chapter 1, noting the ways that Grandin uses evidence to support her claim that being autistic allows her to understand animal behavior on a unique level.
