Adjustment facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

An adjustment is when something is changed in a small way. This is usually to make it better. The word can be used as a verb, as in "Bill needs to adjust his tie".

Examples of adjustments:

  • The wrong word is written on a piece of paper. By erasing the word and writing the right one, an adjustment has been made to the paper.
  • A picture hung on a wall is not straight. It can be adjusted by moving it and making it straight.
