3 Fast, Free Lesson Plans to Fight Fake News

3 Fast, Free Lesson Plans to Fight Fake News | Going Digital | Scoop.it
Just as the flu shot exposes a person to enough of the dead “harmless” virus to cause immunity, we can also expose students to things that have already been verified or shown to be fake. By exposing our students to things that look very real, we can help them notice and understand that many things that look real, are lies. We can also help them understand why shady companies and organizations actually benefit from fake news (like a movie coming out this month in one of these examples.)

Most Kiddle search results are illustrated with big thumbnails, which makes it easier to scan the results, differentiate between them, and click the most appropriate results to your query. Thumbnails serve as visual clues and are especially beneficial to kids as they don't read as fast as adults. 
Kiddle use a .co instead of a .com domain?: In Kiddle's case "co" stands for "children only".
Kiddle is powered by Google Safe Search but is not affiliated with Google Inc.
