Too Young for Social Media?


(The video newscast is disabled for this preview.)


1. Do you think children under 13 should have access to social media? Why or why not?

2. What do you think are the positive and negative aspects of social media?

3. Would you be interested in using this new under 13 Instagram platform? Why or why not?


Students will be able to prove with evidence the “pros and cons” of social media for children using multimedia sources to form an opinion and write a petition that advertises a call to action towards state leaders.
