Digital Citizens

​​

Many things that used to happen in person now happen online. This means that we are digital citizens and we can work to do good things online.

Do this true or false quiz with your child to practice learning about digital citizenship. To make it more fun, have your child hop like a bunny if they think the answer is true, and curl up like a rock if they think the answer is false (or choose other actions based on your child’s abilities). *You can find the answers at the end of the lesson plan.

True or False:

  1. It’s ok to share my password with my friends
  2. The Internet can help me learn new skills
  3. I should let my parents/guardians know if I am creating a new account
  4. I can say mean things online that I wouldn’t say in person
  5. I should tell a parent/guardian when a stranger talks to me online
  6. I can get in trouble for bullying people online
  7. If I delete something I put online, it will go away forever
  8. If I am posting something that somebody else created, I should give them credit
  9. If I see something inappropriate online, I should tell a parent/guardian
  10. If someone is trying to hurt my feelings online, I should tell somebody
