Are Tween Girls Smart Like Elephants?
March 10, 2011

Do you have a memory like an elephant? If so, that’s great, right! Well not only do elephants have a great memory, elephants are super smart!

This new study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, reports how elephants work like a team! And if you’re a scientist, this is huge news. So let’s celebrate with scientists around the world, who now agree that elephants are as smart as chimpanzees and dolphins!

Did you know that cooperating – you know, working together with others to get something done – shows how smart you are? Kewl, right? That must mean that iTwixie tweens are uber smart – you girls ROCK at cooperating! And so do elephants.

The study that just came out is full of results that show how elephants cooperate, work as a team to get what they want. It’s amazing.


Researchers estimate that fewer than 2500 of these animals are left in the Thai jungle, so taking steps to keep elephants and where they live safe is as important now than ever.

How do you work like a team to get what you want? Are you as smart as an elephant?
