Concept activities using examples
A TRIED-AND-TESTED approach to exploring concepts is to generate possible examples of a given concept and write them down for your group to ponder. You would include items you think are good examples of the concept, along with items that might be contrary examples and borderline cases. In this section we present words, statements and situations you could present to your pupils. The key document will explain how to use the examples.
