groups called flowers and not flowers? Do any of the pictures on the cards
show flowers? No, they don’t show flowers. Could we sort the cards into two
groups called dogs and not dogs? Yes, we could. Some of the pictures are dogs.

group. The second picture shows a cat. So we could put that in the group
called not dogs. The third picture would go in the
group called dogs. The rabbit would go in the group
which are not dogs. This picture belongs in the group
called dogs. We can also categorize this picture
as a dog. The final picture shows a
