Option 1: What are some primary-friendly “scam scenarios” that you could use in the classroom for encouraging students to critically think about messages they receive? Create your own “fake scam” to share with the community so they can try and spot the tell-tale signs!

A primary-friendly ‘scam scenario’ can be as simple as finding out student’s interests, and creating a scam based off that. For example, Johnny really likes Fortnite (unfortunately) so his teacher could make a scam based off of that.
