The older students get, the more important peer influence is to them. Our upper elementary students need us to provide explicit peer pressure lessons and teach them about decision-making skills! This resource focuses on helping students understand and identify peer pressure so that they can respond in ways aligned with their values.
Instead of diving deep into refusal strategies, the emphasis is on modeling and discussing relevant scenarios and how to handle them, so that students can generalize and apply what they’ve learned.
Included in the resource:
ASCA and CASEL aligned lesson plan
Slideshow to guide that lesson that teaches about peer pressure and how to respond
Seven scripted role plays for small groups to perform (the audience will decide how it should end!)
Double-sided worksheet for extension practice
Closing questions in slideshow and exit tickets
