Staying Safe Online

Description:   Students understand that they should stay safe online by choosing websites that are good for them to visit, and avoid sites that are not appropriate for them.

First, students learn about the similarities between staying safe in the real world and when visiting websites. Next, they learn about the website traffic light and complete an activity where they match statements about websites to the correct safety level of the site. Then they play an interactive game and consider how to determine which websites are just right for them.
