Sheep and Faces – level 1

14-09-2021 15:00

There is new research. People from Cambridge University carry it out. The people study 8 sheep. They teach them to identify the faces of four people. In the end, the sheep identify the people 8 times out of 10.

This is important research. It shows that sheep can identify faces. They are like people or monkeys.

Difficult words: research (study, experiment to find out if something is true), carry out (do), identify (to know how somebody looks).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
