So pretty much you have your unordered list, with a list item in it. Inside that list item, you start a new unordered list nested inside of it.

This is a process called nesting. You take one element and nest it inside another. The list item then becomes a list itself. The same could be done with many other elements. experiment with it and have fun.

<ol> <li>Shapes</li> </ol>
