While learning about the signs of bullying, it's key for students to also understand the numbers. They may not know how widespread an issue it is or they may feel like they're the only one. Creating an infographic PSA is a great way to familiarize students with the statistics of bullying. They can choose to focus on one type of bullying, like physical, verbal, or cyber, or analyze bullying as a whole.
Students should use sites like www.bullyingstatistics.org or https://www.stopbullying.gov as a starting point for their infographic to ensure they have the most up to date statistics. To extend the activity, consider asking students to compare bullying statistics from ten years ago to what they are today. Have they gone down? Up? Why might that be?
The complexity of this activity can be tailored for any age group, and the instructions are customizable so you can be sure your students completely understand the assignment! For additional templates to add to this assignment, check out our infographic template gallery!
