Activity Overview


In this activity, students demonstrate their understanding of vocabulary words using a Frayer Model. After choosing a word, students provide a definition, characteristics, examples (synonyms), and non-examples (antonyms) of the word. Students may be provided the vocabulary words, or they can use words that they have discovered through their reading of the text.

This example uses the word "inconspicuous":

  • Definition: not noticeable, not prominent
  • Characteristics: Claudia shoves Jamie out of the way of a photographer; she knows they have to be inconspicuous so they won't get caught.
  • Examples: unobtrusive, camouflaged, concealed
  • Non-examples: exposed, noticeable, open
