Learn about Digital Citizenship with Common Sense Media

First up is Common Sense Media

https://www.commonsense.org/education/digital-citizenship-week They have a page all about Digital Citizenship Week and they also link to resources and activities.

Make an Internet Safety Themed Bulletin Board

Preparing your classroom with functional décor for digital citizenship topics gets everyone excited and engaged. This Student-Created Bulletin Board set includes one for the Internet Safety Standard, Digital Citizen. The activity has students come up with rules for being safe on the internet. Click on the picture to see the set.

Read eBooks

eBooks are a great way to introduce students to digital citizenship vocabulary. Read these eBooks to your classes. There are 15 booklets so you can spread them across grade levels over the course of Digital Citizenship Week (and beyond).

Try Digital Activities for Digital Citizenship Topics

I have 2 sets of activities for K-5 digital citizenship. Pick one or the other based on what you want to have included.
This one goes along with the Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship Curriculum. They’re supplemental digital activities for each CSM lesson:
If you don’t want to use the CSM lessons then this set of resources and activities are what I’ll recommend:

Review Digital Citizenship with Discussions and Digital Breakouts

Discussion prompts are a great way to see what your students know and how they’ve been thinking about these topics already.

Next, have a fun review with Digital Breakouts!

Hopefully this list gives you some inspiration for how to cover Digital Citizenship Week with your students.
