Share an activity idea or classroom resource that you have found online or created yourself that involves primary students exploring private and public information sharing. It could be a video, lesson plan, storybook, song or anything else!
The following activity allows students to show their understanding of public and private information sharing. It may be beneficial to the students to firstly brainstorm examples of public and private information to ensure a clear understanding of what is meant by ‘information’.
Students are required to sort through a list of information cards (your birthday, favourite colour, phone number, full name etc) based on whether they believe the information should be publicly shared or kept private. They will sort these into a table. This task could be done independently, in pairs, or as a whole class activity where each student has one card and they need to sort themselves into two groups. Upon completion of task, discuss how the students sorted their information cards and brainstorm other examples of public and private information.
