ABC Graffiti is an excellent tool to have students think about different vocabulary words in any unit. Students will record words or phrases for each letter of the alphabet related to the theme/topic. It is a great activity to use before starting a new topic to activate background knowledge, during your unit to keep track of vocabulary words and concepts, or after a unit to summarize all you have learned.
