Activity Overview

When covering important topics it is essential for all students to understand common terminology so that everyone is on the same page with content. It also helps facilitate richer classroom discussions. When students define words in their own terms using visuals, it helps students get their perspective across and better retain information.

In this activity, students will create a spider map that defines and illustrates different types of bullying. Other activities throughout this guide will refer back to these terms: Verbal Bullying, Cyber Bullying, Physical Bullying, Social Bullying, and Intimidation.
