This problem-solving activity allows native-English-speaking students to tap into their unconscious knowledge about the meaning and use of prepositions in and on.
When do we use in and when do we use on?
IN: car, taxi, truck, limo, van, elevator, rocket
ON: plane, ship, subway, train, bus
Think of other nouns having to do with transportation and determine whether they sound better with IN or ON.
Can you figure out what separates the IN-group from the ON-group?
