Year 4 – Lesson 6 – Can I believe what I read?

Curriculum KS2 Unit Lesson

Learners will gain an appreciation of the fact that not everything they see on the internet is true, honest, or accurate. They will review images and decide whether or not they are real, before looking at why web searches can return ambiguous (and sometimes misleading) results. Finally, learners will complete a practical activity, demonstrating how quickly information can spread beyond their control.
