3-5 Faux Paw (Video Clip (4:05:87 or Presentation 
    Explains the basics of personal privacy on the Internet and three basic rules to follow:
  1. I keep safe my personal information - all of it! I never give my real name, address, phone number, the name of my school or a picture of myself to anyone online without checking with my teacher or an adult.
  2. I keep away from internet strangers - no matter what they tell me because I have no way of knowing who they really are. I don't talk with them online and I never meet them face-to-face. 
  3. I keep telling my parents about everything I see on the Internet - I always tell them or a trusted adult when something makes me uncomfortable.
