In the video, Plum sent the Earthlings on a mission to observe a small piece of Earth and record what they found. Now it's your turn! Take your field notebook and head outside. Bring a camera if you have one. Find a place you'd like to explore in depth, sit down, and spend a minute simply listening and looking. Then, choose something to observe closely, such as a spider web, the bark of a tree, or a squirrel. Take notes in your notebook or make drawings showing what you're observing. What does it look like? If it's an animal, what is it doing? If it's a plant, where is it growing? Are any animals walking or crawling on it, eating parts of it, or using it in some other way?
