Product Description
This was an assignment I created while teaching a unit on Media Literacy. Students discussed types of Media, and this sparked the lesson into media via television, print, radio, and online. We talke about how they get their news, current affairs etc...
Students discussed how they visit different social media outlets to receive information. We discussed how a lot of information that is circulated around the web is not always accurate and factual, but based on hearsay,rumors, and opinions versus facts.
In conclusion they learned that double checking your sources is very important. Especially when it comes to serous issues. They now know the importance of not believing everything you see, or read online.

This page includes a website: Snopes.com that is based on checking the accuracy of stories & articles that were very popular circulating around the internet at different times. This has a few articles that some may deem inappropriate, or maybe too mature for younger students, so please look over before. Use your own discretion.
My students loved it, and wanted to continue working on it, but we ran out of time.
I hope you & your kiddos enjoy, mine certainly did!
