Clearing away the clouds of adolecence
Clearing away the clouds of adolecence

During our sixth grade adolescent health class this week, students delved into the vocabulary that is often centered around adolescence and puberty.  In small groups, students worked to create colorful and creative word clouds to demonstrate their knowledge of words associated with the growth and development physically, mentally, cognitively, and socially during puberty.

Placing students in small groups engages them in conversations about what changes do occur during adolescence. Having students readily use the related vocabulary helps them  gain comfort in using these words.  The word clouds turned out to be thoughtful and interesting and will certainly prove helpful as we move through this portion of our curriculum with more ease.
