Let's be a little more specific

The syntax (format) for every method consists of a signature and a body.

public void my_first_method ( ) {

The signature of this method is everything to the left of the "{" character shown above.

The body consists of everything between that "{" character and a "}" character (at the end of the skeleton).

The body of the skeleton is empty when you create a new world.

We will populate the body with comments and program instructions to accomplish the goals of the program.
