3rd Graders Learn Internet Safety From Netsmartzkids.org

It is humbling, but every so often I am reminded that a well chosen cartoon can teach a concept better than all of my words, singing, dancing, and standing on my head!!  This week I found this to be true with Netsmartzkids.org's Interactive Adventure Router's Birthday Surprise.  The lesson provides students with a variety of concepts all centered around Internet Safety.  It grabs their attention from the beginning and keeps their attention as it instructs students on rules of online safety.  Students are given badges as they successfully progress through the maze of information and activities.   Thanks to my colleague Mark Deming, Media Specialist at Orchard Lake Elementary for sharing this one with us!!
