This lesson plan for teachers of teenage students at level B1/ B2 raises awareness of Safer Internet Day. Students will produce a ‘top tips’ poster. 


Safer Internet Day (#SID) is celebrated every year in February. To help raise awareness of this important issue, this lesson plan is all about online safety and young learners.

In this lesson, students start by talking about how they use the internet, they then watch a video about online safety and read about staying safe online. They do a speaking activity based on the video and the text, and finish by making a poster with their top tips for staying safe online.
