In addition to the activity suggestions on this site, here are some resources you may want to include in your Digital Citizenship Emphasis.

NOTE TO TEACHERS: Use the grade level resources on this site to help bring awareness to digital citizenship issues student will face as they live in our digital world. These resources can be grouped according to topic - for instance, the C, A, and R pages are similar topics and can be blended together. Save the Think page for the last day of emphasis - it includes an Internet Safety Pledge or Contract and will be a good conclusion after all the topics are covered. You may show videos whole group or put the link in your Google Classroom or Haiku Class so students can access on their Chromebooks.

There may be more material here than can be covered in a week of emphasis. Take as long as you need to cover these important topics. Include the District Internet Safety Curriculum lesson plans for your grade level or you may wish to do those lessons at another time that is more appropriate.
