Housework

My topic for this concept map is: Housework.  My research question is: In what ways can one manage housework? And yes, this topic is a little oversimplified for the purpose of making this fun and finding a topic that we all know about....

Managing Housework

Add different ways for managing housework.  Start with broader terms, like organizing, then narrow them even more.  Maybe create a link off of organizing that is an even narrower concept.
