Creating Strong Passwords

As part of our Digital Citizenship curriculum in grades 3-5, we discuss the importance of having strong passwords. With the shift to online learning, your student may need to create new online accounts. This game reinforces what students have already learned in grades 3-5 about keeping accounts secure and will be a great introduction for students in grades K-2 that are now using Google Classroom and other websites.
