The Frayer Model:
Examples
In the third box, you will list examples of the key or concept word.  Ask for student input at this point.  Have students offer examples, and write their suggestions on the board or overhead.  Some of the examples I came up with for crystals include: metals, rocks, snowflakes, salt, and sugar.  In the box labeled examples, I will write the following examples.
