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 allows class discussions to run more smoothly, since students will have the vocabulary to describe content. Defining words in their own terms alongside visuals helps students get their perspectives across and retain information better. In this activity, students will create a visual vocabulary board with peer pressure vocabulary. They should aim to create scenes that show different scenarios of the term they have chosen. Students should select at least three of the terms below for their boards.
