        Homonyms: Form teams. Create a list of words and have teams think of as many different ways to                relate the words (ie starts with same letter, has similar meaning, similar class, etc). Have them draw a         sketch of each network. The team with the most networks wins. 
                    Objective: understand that context and definition of nodes and links are important factors in                            understanding structure.
        Randomness and Facebook: Make a small, blank adjacency matrix. Have students flip coins to                    determine a 1 or 0 and fill in the matrix. Then have them download their Facebook network, delete                themselves, and qualitatively compare structure. 
                    Objective: structure is not random.
        Low-tech social network I: Students receive a piece of paper and they have to "create" a social network         profile. Once created, they have to upload themselves and stick the piece of paper onto             
        the whiteboard/flip chart. From there the students draw relations between the profiles. Ask them                questions such as: who is your friend? With who do you cooperate? Etc.
        Low-tech social network II: Basically the same as above but uses balls of yarn instead of paper. This            could get quite fun when strings are everywhere! During this exercise grab a piece of string and the            students have to describe their relation.
