Welcome to the Web

Welcome to the Web is a series of lessons for teaching young students how to navigate the Internet. There are seven lessons in the series although the first lesson is really just an introduction to the site. The other lessons in the series teach kids the basic vocabulary of the web, online safety, and search techniques. The series concludes with a challenge exercise in which students test their new knowledge and skills. Every lesson in the series comes with an optional worksheet in PDF form.

Applications for Education
Welcome to the Web provides a clear, easy-to-navigate format that elementary school students can use to get acquainted with the basics of Internet use. The PDF worksheets provide a physical record of a student's progress that teachers can track.
