Activity Overview


In this activity, students are able to demonstrate their understanding of vocabulary words using a Frayer Model. In this model, 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. The sentences and images validate the understanding of the word and the context in which it was used in the novel.
