Here are some of the websites that I use during my Digital Citizenship Unit usually taught in late April through May.
Netsmartz (no log in required)
The NetSmartz program offers age-appropriate resources to help teach children how to be safer on- and offline. The program is designed for children ages 5-17, parents and guardians, educators, and law enforcement. With resources such as videos, games, downloadable activities, and presentations, NetSmartz entertains while it educates.
