Being Responsible And Respecting Privacy
Show students a bunch of keys. Ask the students what keys are used for. Why do we have to keep our house locked and safe? What are some other things we keep locked up? Create and chart a list of answers.
Why do we have to keep these things locked in a safe and secure place? Because they are private and belong to us.Elicit that privacy is keeping your personal and valuable information to yourself safe and secure and away from others.
