1 Procedures:

Hook/Attention Getter:

The teacher will play the Flocabulary YouTube video "Internet Safety for Kids" to present the idea of Internet Safety. 

Direct/Guided Instruction:

The teacher will ask students to turn and talk with partners about what they think is most important in Internet Safety.  She will then lead a class discussion over digital footprints and the need for digital safety with students. 

The teacher will then play the short YouTube video "Internet Safety Top 10" created by B4UClick.org.

Independent Practice:

The teacher will have the students join a Library Google Classroom and click on the Digital Safety assignment.  The teacher will monitor while students drag and drop text to the appropriate side of the Digital Footprint page.  

Wrap Up:  When students are finished with their Digital Safety Assignment, the teacher will review all answers on the SMARTboard, review student responses, and answer questions. 

If time permits the teacher will play another YouTube video/Rap created by the faculty and students at the William E. Doar School for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. entitled "Cyberspace" that reminds the students to "Stop, Think, and Connect" online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47vtDPcU14o .
