2. Add as many concrete words as you can to each of the abstract categories.
3. Remember that the abstract/concrete distinction is not two boxes into which words can be put. Words can be more or less abstract or concrete. Select one of the concrete words on your list (or in the exercise above) and list five words that are more concrete examples of that word. For example, how many types of trucks can you name?
4. To explain some abstract words, it is better to give and explain examples of it. Pick one word from the following list and write a paragraph that explains what it means to you. Use as many concrete examples as you can. Your teacher may have everyone read their paragraphs in class to see the different ways in which the word is defined.
