Understanding that things that go together are not always the same
Why is this important?
Children need to learn how words relate to each other but also how they differ from other words (e.g. an apple and carrot are both foods but apples are fruits whereas carrots are vegetables). This helps to build semantics (word meaning) and expands vocabulary.
What to do
Fruits vs. vegetables.
Hot vs. cold foods.
Things eaten for breakfast/lunch/dinner/tea.
Hard vs. soft foods.
