Why are so many American children lagging behind the rest of the world in the subject of science? I can tell you the reason because, being a dog, I not only understand the reason, but I am going to share it in order to make life a better place for everyone. Science is boring. For example, look at the periodic table, It is made up a "chemical elements"-not one of which holds any interest for a dog. They are thinking of adding another one---ununpentium. Ununpentium does not exist, but it sounds like something you would put in a computer. To heighten the humans (and dogs) interest in science, I would suggest you make a few changes to the curriculum, and start with the periodic table. Here is my suggestion for the new periodic table:
Bacon, cheese, hamburger, steak, salmon, ribs, ham, roast beef, fish, Swedish Fish, etc.
I guarantee you that a periodic table with food on it would grab a dog's interest. I have yet to meet a dog who cares anything about the periodic table the humans are using now!
