This is a powerpoint presentation with student engagement in mind! This slideshow will teach your students how to find information online that is reliable and true! Showing students that there is more than just Google!!! Students will learn how to evaluate websites and stay away from FAKE NEWS and ADS!
Students are first directed to a FAKE website about an endangered animal! Next students will view a rubric. This Rubric is from Common Sense Media about evaluating websites. There are 5 slides on safe searches on the web and how to avoid ADS on search engines for kids. Then there is an additional infographic on Fake News from IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations).
The next slide is a link to a real fake news (child appropriate story about chocolate CURING acne from Scholastic). Teacher and Students can evaluate the FAKE NEWS together. Great Real life application!
There is a link for the students to follow to make their own FAKE NEWS story and a video about fake news. Last, there are additional resources for teachers.
