Snopes is well known as a reliable fact-checking website. Rumors and fake news can spread at alarming rates on the internet, and this is a great place to go to check if a story is true or not.
This is the go-to website for all things related to digital citizenship. It has wonderful resources for helping kids (and adults!) become better, more informed internet users, including at-home activities, discussion tips, and print-outs.
