Activity Overview


In any classroom, vocabulary is a critical component for expanding student knowledge. A perfect way for students to practice vocabulary skills is to create Storyboards that show the use of a word in a real life context, or visually depict the word's meaning. When students define a word and use it in context, they better retain it as part of their own vocabulary.

In this activity, students demonstrate their understanding of vocabulary words using a Frayer Model. After choosing a word, students provide a definition, quote, 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 poem.

Definition

Quote

"I battered the cordons around me"


Examples
