What a great lesson on media literacy!
I came across this website, http://bullyingacademy.org/, and thought we’d try it out. I started my 4th and 5th graders on it last week, which involved getting their user names and passwords and then taking a pretest. This was done and when we get back from winter break, we will begin with a scavenger hunt. So far, so good.
Check it out here:
Heard about this at the McAuliffe conference. Looks good: http://www.kidrex.org/
is still around! It’s an Aussie version now but can be found here: http://home.disney.com.au/activities/surfswellisland/
This is why I could not access the page-I use Adblock on Firefox. All that would happen is it would load and load, drawing Mickey’s ears over and over. Now I can see the site!
It’s good for 3rd graders and below.
And Mike, thanks once again!
