Common Sense Education has partnered with CYBER.ORG to support cybersecurity education. If you want to build on the themes from this lesson, we recommend the following lesson from the CYBER.ORG content library:
- Agreeing to the Rules (Grades K–2): Students learn about user agreements and how these relate to appropriate behavior in class and when using devices at school.
Our collaboration with CYBER.ORG was made possible with the generous support of Craig Newmark Philanthropies.
