    Identify two different types of organisms that you have seen interacting, such as bees and flowers. Now form a simple hypothesis about this interaction. Use the scientific method and your imagination to design an experiment that tests this hypothesis. Be sure to identify variables and a control for them.

    The set of experiments you are describing deal with classic interactions between species. In keeping with the interaction you have described you could talk about bee and flower preference. Now when a bee (or any particular insect) is attracted to a flower you can observe that readily by marking the flower with some sort of tracer (like a dye or radioactive isotope). When the bee goes to the flower, the tracer is transferred to the bee.

    Now the fun part. You want to first find ...
