Lesson Plan

Peer Pressure Lesson Plan

Lesson Plan Template


Purpose:  Peer Pressure


Activity:  Discussion and game about peer pressure.

USC5.6 Assess peer influence and demonstrate a readiness to prevent and/or avoid potentially dangerous situations involving peer pressure (including lying, substance use, and bullying).




(c) Examine the different levels of pressure (i.e., internal, indirect, direct).
(d) Describe indicators of positive and negative peer pressure (e.g., positive – encourage healthy behaviours, negative – encourage unhealthy behaviours).
(e) Discuss examples of positive and negative peer influence on personal decision making.
(f) Generate and practise possible strategies to avoid/reduce the risk of potentially dangerous/unhealthy/unsafe situations involving peer pressure (e.g., prepare a mental script, listen to your “gut”, plan for possible pressure situations, use possible parental controls as an excuse).


I can… Recognize and use strategies to say no to peer pressure.

1.    Walk in doing a skit with Ms. Grondin as she is trying to peer pressure me to not do a part of my assignment.

2.    Without using names, who can share an example of something a friend might ask or dare you to do that you would feel uncomfortable about because it went against your values, beliefs, or general sense of right and wrong?

3.    “Yes! Those are all examples of being faced with peer pressure.  Peer pressure happens when your friend or peers try to influence you to act, think or do something in a certain way. 

4.    “Peer pressure can be positive or negative, can you give me an example of both?

5.    Hand out Stand up to peer pressure tips

6.    Review the tips hand out with students



Working as a team the students need to make decisions in a timely manner.

Help each other read the questions and answer the questions.




1.      Play the game!


1.      Have students write on an exit slip an example of peer pressure and something they could do.

2.      Talk about what they took away from the lesson, what they liked, what helped them learn more.


Points from the groups

Exit slips

Next you could get the students to fill out a hand out, or write on the back of one of the “question” cards what they would do.

Teaching Strategy:

Experiential learning

Overall goal for students:

To recognize positive and negative peer pressuring and some strategies.

Treaty Event – Miskâsowin #6

How could treaty education (truth, justice, reconciliation, decolonization, indigenization) look like in your classrooms, schools, homes & communities? What did the Treaty invitational event teach you about this important endeavor?


The treaty event truly taught me that people young and old are interested in the history and knowledge that we have to share, and to share it appropriately is crucial for all Canadians.  I hope as I was at the treaty event to always be open, and aware of conversations and lessons that are occurring all around me each and every day.  My goal as a white settler Canadian is to always teach the truth, the good the bad and the ugly truth always to my students.  As long as you are open and truthful people are usually open to knowledge, and always to be aware of the water that we tread oh so carefully around everyone that we educate, to be aware of yourself and your students through every lesson.

Through this process, I have learned that sitting in a desk isn’t the only way that people learn, in fact in many ways this hinders the learning that is being taught.  I really appreciated and got a lot of information out of the carousel conversating, talking topics over with people that I don’t always get to talk with, and really getting their point of view and in some ways more knowledge or a better understanding.  This opened my eye to the fact that there is a lot of learning to be done alongside your peers.

I also really appreciated the knowledge that the group shared with myths, and names that our province and city hold onto.  It was really great to see some of the truths behind myths that I hear, and know are incorrect.  But also it pushed me to learn more about the myths that I hear so I can educate people when the topic arises.  For the most part, I have always removed myself from a subject that I don’t know enough about to talk about, but learning about the history of the people that schools and streets are named after, really pushed me to explore the truth behind names, and the history of our province and city.

Blog # 4

This post, really and truly should have been done a little while ago but I have been stirring and thinking about the presentation before mine, and my group presentation.  They were very different and they both shaped my thoughts of my miskåsowin journey.  I really am learning and finding my place in how I hope to teach when I find my place in my career.  

Anyways, I think for the first presentation I really enjoyed the initial story, it really made me understand the conversation between the Europeans and Indigenous peoples when signing the treaty and the misunderstanding that happened.  I guess it really put it into perspective.  I also enjoyed the personal story told by Tammy, that really hit home in another way, helped me understand things a little bit more.  It was a great presentation but I learnt that I learn better through stories and personal stories help the teaching that much more.

Then for my personal presentation I really enjoyed the style that we did it in – the more of a learning as a group and together than standing up at the front dictating the knowledge to the class.  I think if I were a high school teacher I may have more respect teaching in this way rather then writing notes on a board and expecting my class to copy them.  But I guess too you live and learn and teaching one way to a class may not work for the next class that you teach.  I also think it is very important to be aware of what you are doing and what you are teaching, because you are impacting people through your activities and through your lessons.  Also, I think it is very important to remember that as a teacher or even just an aspiring teacher you will make mistakes and you will fail, but you just need to try again the next time to make it better.

Apply Pam Palmater’s discussion about reconciliation to your understandings of the implications for yourself (miskåsowin). In what ways could you take up the Principles of Truth & Reconciliation as a treaty responsibility (response-ability)? How does this relate to understanding yourself in terms of treaties?

I think in order to take up Truth and Reconciliation, we have to talk about everything that has happened with our students, with our friends, with our families, and with everyone.  We need to make others aware of the history of segregation, violence, and racism that indigenous people are experiencing.  Unfortunately Pam Palmater is correct, that reconciliation isn’t going to happen over night, nor is going to happen in a year or even five, it has taken too many years to even begin the discussion – that getting to reconciliation is going to take a long time.  I believe it is my responsibility to pass on my knowledge and that understanding that I have gotten through my education to others, not just my students but to everyone who crosses my path.

This relates to my understanding of myself within treaties, because through my learning and education that I have received thus far I strongly believe that I have become a better person just by gaining knowledge and understanding.  I will continue to say this until I am blue in the face but education creates knowledge which creates understanding which will get things moving towards reconciliation.  I am not saying that you need to attend university to gain this education, through conversations with others you can gain this knowledge.  To open your hearts to what people are saying and to listen to things other than the news, the white man, or the commonsense of the school system.
