Unit Checklist:

 

  • Pick an Internet Safety topic of your choice.  Open the design folder on Google Classroom and describe how that topic is important for middle school students to know about.

  • Research your topic using credible, online sources.  Find three facts/hints/tips for middle school students to stay safe online while when dealing with your topic (cyberbullying/social media safety/digital citizenship)

  • Put your research into an aesthetically pleasing poster using Canva . To make your poster look good, remember these tips:
      • Your headline should be creative, eye-catching, and BIG!
      • You should include text, but not entire paragraphs.  What's the big picture that students need to know?
      • Pictures/text should fit in with the topic and arranged so it's easy to see and read
      • Site your sources at the bottom (pictures and facts) by including the web address of where you got the information
