Gather participants in a circle. Explain that science helps us understand our world by making observations and asking questions.

Conclude by saying something like:
Observing our world and asking questions about things that happen help people understand the world around them. Some are questions that science can answer and some are questions that religions try to answer. How does gravity work? That is a question science can answer. Why is there gravity? That's a question religion wonders about, and we may never have a definite answer.
