Internet Safety Computer Center

The internet can be a powerful tool for teaching, but Internet Safety Lesson for Kidsjust like anything meant for grown ups, we need to teach kids how to use it safely and responsibly.  There are lots of ways to include this in your computer center.
One way is to use the Internet Safety Power Point lesson at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
There are also great websites that address the topic of Internet Safety in a way that kids can understand.  My favorite website on this topic is called Cyber Pigs.  This website provides kids with 2 different interactive videos/games on Internet Safety using three teenage aged pigs who are surfing the web.  The first “episode” Cyber Pigs Website to Teach Internet Safety to Kidsaddresses the importance of keeping your personal information private.  The second “episode” addresses cyber-bullying and evaluating the sources of your information carefully.  This website is great to do whole group with your students, or to assign to your computer center with a reflection sheet.
