After we explained offline status and @ replies we stayed outside to talk about the internet.  The goal of this activity was to explain to the kids who have never been on the internet how the internet can be used to connect people all over the world.

This activity was created by my husband AJ to explain the internet and how it effects communication.  Each student had an index card and wrote a country on it that they wanted to represent.  One student had an index card that said ‘internet’ he was commissioned to go to anyone that needed the internet to transmit messages from one country to another country.  The idea of this activity was to show the kids how easy and quick it is to communicate with people all over the world using the internet.

I’m trying to think of  other cool ways to explain to children who have never used the internet how it works.
