Strong passwords are important! Illuminate the qualities behind a secure password while engaging the entire class in an activity in which they secretly create brand new passwords.
Grades 3 – 5
In this activity, students will learn about the importance of strong passwords. The activity will begin as
students play a game to explore how easy or hard it is to guess an unknown word. Students will consider
how this applies to passwords, why it is important to have a secure password, and the qualities that make
a password more secure. The class will then participate in a password creation activity in which they
secretly create brand new passwords. Students will ultimately draw a small picture that they can keep in
a safe spot to remind them of this password when they need one in the future.
