Your mom sits a pile of 4 cookies and a pile of 2 cookies in front of you. They smell soooo good, and you are soooo hungry. Which pile would you take? Why?

Remember how hungry you were, and how your sweet tooth was just howling to be fed? Which pile did you take?

Most people would want the 4 cookies, because 4 cookies are more, or greater than, 2 cookies. Now, let's watch this video about Jack the Duck. Jack is also very hungry, but though he does not like cookies, he loves delicious fish!
