Extend the Lesson
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 resources from CYBER.ORG's content library:
- Layered Security (Grades K–2): Students learn about the physical security around their school and how to verify someone's identity.
- Stronger Together (Grades K–2): Students learn to use more than one security tool to keep people, places, and devices safe.
Our collaboration with CYBER.ORG was made possible with the generous support of Craig Newmark Philanthropies.
