Cruising The Internet (Safety)

 

Project Title:  Cruisin’ the Internet Cruisin': Safely

Software Used:  Internet

Subject and Grade Level:  any

Standards:  12.1.8, 12.2.4, 12.2.5, 12.3.1

Suggestions:  I use this at the beginning of the year to review Internet safety rules with my students.  I try to think of a different theme each year, but next year I plan on using the Cars movie to have students create a bulletin board based on safety.

Materials needed:  Construction paper, markers, scissors, etc.

Lesson Plans/Directions:  The beginning of the year I always go over a few guidelines for using the Internet responsibly.  After I present the basic guidelines, I assign one of my classes to create a bulletin board synthesizing the information that we’ve discussed (usually the freshmen since this is the first time I’ve had them as students).  This year I will be using the movie Cars as my theme.  Students will make “highway signs” warning Internet travelers of upcoming danger.  I will also have them create a “Tow Mater” with a contact for emergency painted on the side of the tow truck.  The contact will direct students to parents, a teacher, or counselor if the student is approached on the Internet (or knows of a friend that may be in danger because of someone they met on-line).  The back of the bulletin board will be designed to look like a highway.
