Talking Safely Online (3-5)
Students learn that, while people can develop rewarding friendships online, they should be cautious with online-only friends and never reveal private information without asking a parent or trusted adult for permission. Students discuss the difference between online and in-person friendships, explore an online chat scenario, and complete and sign a checklist for safe online chatting.
Students will be able to ...
- compare and contrast online-only friends and in-person, face-to-face pals.
- analyze why private information should not be given to anyone online without the permission of a trusted adult.
- debate how to respond if an online-only friend asks them personal questions.
