First and Second graders began by learning that they should stay safe online by choosing websites that are good for them to visit and avoid sites that are not appropriate for them. Traffic light colors are used to represent safety.
A “green” website is:
• A good site for kids your age to visit
• Fun, with things for you to do and see
• Has appropriate words
• Doesn’t let you talk to people you don’t know
A “yellow” website is:
• A site you are not sure is right for you
• One that asks for information such as who you are, where you live, your phone number or email address, etc.
• A place where you are allowed to communicate freely with others
A “red” website is:
• A site that is not right for you
• A place you might have gone to by accident
• Filled with things that are for older kids or adults
