Lesson 6 - Searching the internet

This activity develops digital literacy using the context of exploring Mars. Children learn about what a search engine does and consider what happens when they use one. They also begin to find out that some internet sources are more reliable than others and think about which might be trustworthy.

The activity has been provided by ESERO-UK and is the sixth lesson in a series of Mars Challenge resources.
