Digital Footprints

by Robynn

We learned that cookies and digital footprints are like walking on the beach. Everytime you get a process on your own name or nickname, you leave a cookie or a footprint.

Our activity was to look up our name and city, and see what we can find about ourselves on Google.

Not many people found much about themselves. A few people found some cookies about all sorts of things, but many did not.

If you Google your name, what do you learn about yourself?

Grand Canyon: By Jaden, Christian, Will, Tina, Eriko

We think Mrs. W should visit the Grand Canyon while she’s in Arizona.  We know that the Grand Canyon is 227 miles long and 18 miles wide!

Did you know that no one has ever found a fossilized reptile skeleton or bone within the Grand Canyon? Fossil footprints were left by more than 20 species of reptiles and amphibians, but no teeth or bones!




Internet Safety

26 09 2011

Last week the Arizona Attorney General came to our school to talk to us about internet safety.  We were surprised to hear that Arizona is the number two state in identity theft.  The picture above is a visual of all the things we learned.  There were four main points in what we heard from the Attorney General:

1. Don’t give out information about yourself (phone number, home address, email address).

2. Don’t cyberbully, it’s the law. The police know everything and can trace messages back to you.  Be nice to others.

3. Watch out for cyberpredation. Some people are not really who they say they are and may try to trick you.

4. You shouldn’t have Facebook, Myspace, or Twitter account until you are at least 13 years of age or have parent permission.  If you do have one of these accounts be careful of the information you post so predators can’t track you.  Only add people who you have met in person.  Also, once you put something on the web you can’t delete it.
