    Stand in front of a desk with a book in your hand and say the
    following:

    "Lay means to place an object onto another surface". I will
    lay this book on the desk." (Lay the book on the desk to
    demonstrate.)

    Now, call on a student and ask the following" ___________,
    (insert name), did you lie in your bed last night?"

    Then say, "lie means to stretch out in a resting position, as
    when going to bed."

    Ask for another meaning of lie, as to tell a lie (story, fib,
    etc.)

    Hope this helps!
