E-safety scenario cards

I tend to use these with a Kagan cooperative learning structure (usually 'Showdown' or 'Numbered Heads Together'). See to see how the 'Showdown' structure works.

Millionaire Quiz! (e-Safety/Safer Internet Day)

Featuring functional correct/wrong screens and 50/50 lifelines, this is perfect for assessment, Safer Internet day or parent workshops, this new and improved interactive gameshow is an entertaining way to teach groups about online safety.

There are 15 questions, testing children's knowledge of:

- Vital e-Safety organisations
- Definitions of key terms
- Steps children can take to remain safe online
- Shocking statistics
...and more!

Fantastic for Safer Internet Day but equally good for any e-Safety lesson.

N.B The original logos for Who Wants to be a Millionaire are property of Sony Pictures Television. For this reason they have not been included, but a similar non-trademarked version has.

Please see my shop for other gameshows, worksheets, activities and time-saving ideas.

All feedback is welcome so please do comment and rate.
