Activity Overview

Although it might seem far fetched, no all peer pressure has to be a negative influence! Peer pressure can be positively used to help sculpt a positive school environment. Prior to having the students do this activity, ask them what they think positive peer pressure is. Discuss with them examples of positive peer pressure, and ask them to practice positive peer pressure with a partner in class.

For the activity, students will create a narrative story showing positive peer pressure in example. That peer pressure could be accepting differences, refusal to do a bad behaviors, or influence a positive behavior (refer to example). You may provide students with the first cell and scenario set up if you're working with younger students, or have students create their own scenario.
