Unit 2:  Internet Safety

Students will be participating in a short Internet safety unit that allows them to learn about Internet safety independently.  Each student will take a pre-quiz in order to be entered into the competition.  Then they will complete a 10 circle scavenger hunt, looking for the answers to many different questions.  Throughout the course of the scavenger hunt each student should be able to take the post-quiz and improve their score from the pre-quiz.  In order to view the material go to the website listed below.
