Help Your Child's Experiment Work: Change Just One Thing

For an experiment to work well there should be one independent variable (the thing that changes). For example, if he wants to figure out if daffodils grow better with X, Y or Z fertilizer, then the independent variable should be the type of fertilizer. Help him narrow the focus to one very clear question to solve so the experiment is reliable.
