Hey kids, it's time for "What's That Word?" The exciting game where we pick some words and take a look at their definitions.

Let's start with:

Liberal
a: of, favoring, or based upon the principles of liberalism
b: capitalized : of or constituting a political party advocating or associated with the principles of political liberalism; especially : of or constituting a political party in the United Kingdom associated with ideals of individual especially economic freedom, greater individual participation in government, and constitutional, political, and administrative reforms designed to secure these objectives
c: BROAD-MINDED; especially : not bound by authoritarianism, orthodoxy, or traditional forms

Okay, now just for fun:

Conservative:
a: of or relating to a philosophy of conservatism
b: capitalized : of or constituting a political party professing the principles of conservatism : as (1) : of or constituting a party of the United Kingdom advocating support of established institutions (2) : PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE
c: tending or disposed to maintain existing views, conditions, or institutions : TRADITIONAL
d: marked by moderation or caution (a conservative estimate) marked by or relating to traditional norms of taste, elegance, style, or manners (a conservative suit)

So kids, what have we learned in today's lesson? That's right, say it with me... Liberal good, Conservative bad.
Wasn't that fun?

Now it's your turn, does anyone have their own definitions of these two words they'd like to share with the class?
