Activity Overview


We all set up our own boundaries in life. Sometimes we do it without even thinking about it until we see someone cross them. Introducing an activity to challenge student boundaries is a great prequel to this storyboard activity and will give your students ideas on what to create.

An example exercise is called "peer to peer". Have students find a peer and stand next to them. Ask them to perform fist to fist, which is when they ’fist bump’. Next ask them to perform ‘shoulder to shoulder’, which is when they lean on each other’s shoulders. Finally, ask them to perform ‘forehead to forehead’. This is when you’ll see almost every student stop, say something, or show body language showing where their personal boundaries are. This exercise will help them create the boundary expectations in the storyboard.

In this activity, students will create an illustration of what crossing a boundary looks like, sounds like, and feels like. The purpose of this storyboard activity is to allow students to think about their actions, read body language, recognize and understand verbal cues in real scenarios.
