Essay

Super Scientist

     There are so many questions that are waiting to be answered. How did the moon come in the earth’s orbit?  Why do we have dreams? Why do we yawn? Asking questions is a big part of being a scientist. I ask a lot of questions and I think I have the qualities to become a scientist when I grow up.

     To start off, scientists can do many experiments. If you want to test a hypothesis, you have to do an experiment. For example, if I want to know if eating a certain food causes me to toss and turn at night, I can set up a camera at night on days I ate that food and on days I didn’t and then compare that data. If I still tossed and turned when I am not eating that food, the food is probably not the problem. If it is the problem, I won’t eat the food before bed.

     Next, I can find the answers to my questions. Most of the questions I can find online, but there are some I can’t. For instance, if I do the right experiments and find enough proof to support my theory, I could find the right answer to my own questions. That being said, some questions would be almost impossible to find the answer to like how did the universe start. I still think it would be cool to find the answer to the mysteries of science.  

     Thirdly, scientists research. For example, when you research and ask questions, you learn more about the world that you live in (unless you are researching about another planet). Also, researching can help me make a strong hypothesis. The stronger the hypothesis, the more will be my chance for it to be correct.

      To sum it up, I think being a scientist would be fun. I would do experiments, come up with answers to my questions, and research. I wonder if I will become a scientist in the future! 

Instruction:

People do all kinds of jobs. Some people are in the medical profession. Others serve (army/navy/air force). Some teach. Others sell. Many work on computers and build software. What kind of job would you like to do in the future? 

Write an essay (5 paragraphs) giving three reasons to explain why you want to take up that job.
