2. Use the scientific method in a simple science project. Explain the results to an adult.
3. Visit a museum, a laboratory, an observatory, a zoo, an aquarium, or other facility that employs scientists. Talk to a scientist about his or her work.

2. Find a stream or other area that shows signs of erosion. Try to discover the cause of the erosion.
