This lesson meets standards for AASL and ISTE.

Staying safe online is a lot like staying safe in the real world. Using a fun traffic light activity, students learn how to identify "just right" content, giving them the green light to learn, play, and explore the internet safely.

Students will be able to:
  • Understand that being safe online is similar to staying safe in real life.
  • Learn to identify websites and apps that are "just right" and "not right" for them.
  • Know how to get help from an adult if they are unsure about a website.
