    I like how there are many different options available for teaching cyberbullying to students. The different printables can be incorporated while differentiating instruction during the lesson.

    This a great collection of lesson ideas that I will be able to use in my media center. I’m not sure though, why the lesson plan on science fairs is listed under cyberbullying. My classroom teachers could make really good use of the science fair lesson plans as most classes require students to complete a science fair project. It’s just that my teachers would not look for it under cyberbullying.

    I love the idea of having the students make posters and hang throughout the school. I was thinking my 5th/6th graders could make digital posters on postermywall or something similar and I could hang in the bathrooms and down the hallways. It would be a great thing for the younger students to see.
