Do you know that Chinese characters were made in four different ways?
1. Some look like real objects.
2. Some indicate ideas but not real objects.
3. Some give you an idea of the meaning by combining different parts.
4. Some give you an idea of the meaning and also an idea of the pronunciation.
Now try to classify the following characters according to the way they were created.
一 二 三 五 六 八
人 上 下 中 田 小
尖 马 鸟 水 心 目
女 好 男 问 明 日
钟 石 妈 木 月 力
