They can tell us when something is happening e.g. He always brushes his teeth before he goes to school.

They can tell us the reason or why something happens e.g. She didn't go outside in the rain because she didn't want to get wet.

Before, after, when, during, while, so that, because, and, but, or and so are all conjunctions.
