From an early age, it\u2019s important for students to start learning healthy media habits. More and more, digital citizenship skills like balancing screen time with other activities, being kind to others online, and knowing what\u2019s OK and not OK to share online are essential at the elementary school level. But working digital citizenship lessons into an already-packed daily schedule can be a challenge for most teachers.\nFor Digital Citizenship Week 2019, we\u2019ve put together a series of quick video discussion activities you can use to kickstart your commitment to digital citizenship. These can fit into a short, 10-minute window of time -- be it planned or unplanned. It\u2019s easy -- just show the video to your students, then use the questions to lead a class discussion! And if you find time to take it further, each video has a free lesson plan linked on the video page, complete with slides, student handouts, family activities, and more.\nActivities for Grades K\u20132\nMedia Balance Is Important\nThrough this fun song, students will start to think about how to find a happy balance between their online and offline activities!\nDiscussion Questions: What was your favorite part of the song?
