Because children go online earlier than ever before, parents and guardians need to start talking to them about the digital world and online privacy much sooner than they used to. With this in mind, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, in collaboration with provincial and territorial counterparts, has produced a series of activity sheets to help young people understand various privacy issues in a visually appealing, easy-to-understand format.
Privacy Snakes and Ladders is a twist on the classic children’s game that helps players learn how to make smart privacy choices by climbing up a ladder when they make a good decision or sliding down a snake because they made a poor decision like sharing a password with a friend.
Connect the Dots has kids complete the picture of a family with a checklist of rules they can use at home to practice good online privacy
Word Search introduces children to privacy vocabulary by having them comb through a puzzle to find words such as “post,” “click” and “footprint.”
