This eye-opening website provides an interactive quiz that is designed to enable students to understand the alcohol advertising market, and how the market really does aim towards youth (which according to the website, accounts for about 20% of all alcohol consumption). Click "Begin Quiz Now." The quiz is designed for grades 6-8, but could be very useful in other grades. The website teaches students that alcohol advertisements are everywhere - TV commercials, TV shows, ads in magazines, branded clothing, sponsorships at sporting events, and more. This website also has links to lesson plans about Kids, Alcohol, and Advertising. The lesson plans include learning outcomes and many details. They are designed mainly for grades 4-8. The quiz requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): advertising (33)

In the Classroom

Share this informative on an interactive whiteboard or projector at the start of al alcohol unit. Have students guess at their seats what the correct answer would be (either on paper or by show of hands). Use the questions on the quiz as a springboard for a class discussion or class meeting about under-age drinking. Brainstorm a list together of times that they recall hearing or seeing an alcohol advertisement. Be sure to discuss the question involving the "deaths caused by driving under the influence of alcohol." 40% of vehicle deaths involve alcohol.

Come up with a list of ways for the students to avoid "being the target." Have the class journal, create short skits, or have small group discussions about how to handle the advertisements.

Teachers can also use this site during a drug unit or Red Ribbon Week as background information for students or student groups to make printable anti-drug posters using PicLits, reviewed here.

This colorful and creative website shares the beautiful true story of the friendship between Owen and Mzee (a young hippo and a 130-year old tortoise). The resources available at this website are truly amazing. The sound clips alone are guaranteed to delight your students. Teachers will find several interdisciplinary lesson plans, documentary videos, a detailed teachers' guide, a "picture pond" slide show of the area of Kenya where Owen and Mzee reside, interactive activities to learn Swahili, and more. The beauty of this website (and story) is its ability to teach acceptance, resilience, diversity, African culture, and more in a fun and engaging style. This website is truly a MUST SEE for any elementary or middle school class. Don't miss the "KIDS BOMA" link. This highly engaging link includes sing-alongs, games, video makers, and even "Mzee's Swahili Rebus". Many of the activities require Flash, some require Adobe Acrobat. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): diversity (36)

In the Classroom

Opportunities abound at this image-rich website. Share the documentaries, video clips, and the story of Owen and Mzee on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Take a peek at the "ready to go" lesson ideas for grades 2-7. Use this excellent resource as a springboard for a class meeting on acceptance and diversity. Use the link for "KIDS BOMA" as a learning center. Share the video slide show as an anticipatory set on a lesson about the animals of Africa.

Be sure to share this link with the parents of your students in a class newsletter or on your class website.

This authentic website connects math to everyday life. The website offers informational text and numerous interactive "real life" math investigations. Topics include Playing to Win, Savings and Credit, Population Growth, Home Decorating, Cooking by Numbers, The Universal Language, & Related References . Some examples of the interactive investigations include determining whether it is smarter to buy or lease a car and how much you will save for retirement (based on how much you invest each month and how many years the money remains in the bank).

What a fabulous website to use in any economics, finance, or upper-level math class. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to share the website and activities. Then allow your students to explore independently and fill out the interactive investigations for their own futures.

This site is a discussion-opener on safe use of the "social web." Some of the tools included are social networking sites, virtual worlds, chat, cell phones, video-sharing, and more. There are tips and advice for just about any medium kids and adults use today, as well as discussion forums where parents can ask questions and share information. Each article and advice section can be emailed at the click of a mouse. You can also download and share printable version (site creators do ask that you not modify them and that you simply tell them if you do download and share). While some posts may not represent your point of view, the important thing is to open dialog.

tag(s): internet safety (109), safety (92), social networking (112)

In the Classroom

Include this link on your teacher or school web page for parents to access as part of a plan to work together. Consider using it as a hub for an evening discussion session with parents and students in a "round table" to air concerns and work together. Simply blocking or ignoring these tools is not educating or helping our kids. We want our students to grow into safe and responsible citizens both online and in person. If your school can involve and inform parents and students, you will have a better likelihood of using the new tools of the web in productive classroom settings, as well.

This article, available in both audio recording and print on the web page, shares a parent's experience discovering that her daughter has been the victim of cyberbullying. The article is written from an adult perspective, but the facts and feelings it reveals are very real to anyone. Parents with children as young as elementary grades should be aware of things they should watch for, say, and do to help their children. Teachers should read it to understand the nature of the problem, as well.

tag(s): bullying (52), cyberbullying (43), internet safety (109), safety (92)

In the Classroom

Share this article with parents in a newsletter or school web page so they, too, can be involved in talking with their children about cyberbullying. Use it as a discussion starter for a parent organization meeting or possibly in a group of middle school students to open the conversation about their experiences and how different they are from what their parents were familiar with as children. Both parents and children would benefit from open dialog on the subject as part of a consistent effort for Internet safety in your school and homes.

If you make a map in Google Maps, an online graphic organizer, a set of online flash cards, to anything else that allows you to share my emailing or copying a URL, this tools will save you from endless errors or emails full of ten-line URLs. Be sure to show your middle and high school students how to use it, as well. This will solve the problem of URLs that get split and no longer work when the text wraps around to another line.

This attractive, interactive site includes online movies, complete lesson plans, and activities for teaching all about Internet Safety, for three levels of elementary students: preK-1, 2-3, and 4-5 (click on Learning Resources for the plans). "Episodes" of animated movies with sound and accompanying coloring book pages and activities make it easy to teach each of five lessons for your grade level. The audio and spelling are from new Zealand, so a quick geography lesson could be included for U.S. classrooms! Teach about protecting personal information, who to trust, how to handle uncomfortable situations, and getting help.

NOTE: You MUST disable your pop-up blocker for some portions of the site to work! See Tools>Pop up Blocker Settings to tell the computer to always allow pop-ups from this site. the entire site is done in Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. This site is resource-rich and really needs a high speed connection and opens fairly slowly. Be patient.

The "episode" movies are perfect for a projector or interactive whiteboard and are ideally suited for follow-up discussion so students can connect to the content. Anyone can teach about Internet Safety with these free, easy-to-understand lessons. Include parents by sharing the link on your teacher web page or through building or class newsletters.

Everything is ready to go.

For example, in June, activities on Father's day are in the forefront as well as summer craft fun. Other subjects of interest for kids and parents include lunch box ideas, a music/song feature, party ideas, games,and recipes. There are advertisements (designated as "Ads by Google"), so you will want to navigate the site together to prevent getting stuck in commercialism! Look for the word "Activity" for links to the actual ideas.

This simple site allows a school to sign up ( free) for a confidential bully reporting system. Students, teachers, parents can click to report a bully and turn in a report confidentially so school administration can look into the incident. Though there is the potential for bogus reports, this site would likely work well with elementary students or even middle schoolers IF you explained it to them in advance and spoke specifically about the consequences of false reports. The benefit is that the service allows students to report an incident without fear that a bully might "see them in the office."

Teachers and principals will like the written record the system generates by emailing the report to the designated contact.

The New York Times Learning Network has brought together a number of resources on school violence. Although the site does not include any coverage of the 2006 Amish school shooting, there are contemporary Times reports of a number of other high-profile cases of school violence. The reports are coupled with several lesson plans designed to help students talk about these issues, as well as resources to help teachers plan effective discussions on school violence.

In the Classroom

Teachers cannot ignore the issues of school violence, nor hope they can avoid questions from students. The issue is not whether they should talk about it with students, but how they can do it most effectively and honestly. These lesson plans and resources can help teachers feel prepared, either for a planned discussion, or for the spur-of-the-moment question that becomes a teachable moment.
