Online Quiz for Students

Have students complete an online quiz to consolidate their understanding of what it means to be smart, alert, strong, kind and brave. The questions are all based upon content from the incursion & are designed to be completed as an individual task, small groups or even a whole class discussion. You will be given your score immediately upon completion.

Please find a downloadable (& printable) certificate that can also be utilised as part of the learning sequence.

Use these Google Slides to create a set of class posters. Simply add text boxes to each slide with ways that the class will be smart, alert, strong, kind & brave. Print on

After co-creating the Smart, Alert, Strong, Kind & Brave posters, students add a selfie to the "Thrive Online" poster as their way of signing on to the pledge. All posters are then printed and hung on the classroom wall as a reminder for the year.

Students bring their pledge to life using a digital tool such as Flipgrid, iMovie, podcasting, Scratch or even presenting at a whole school assembly as a public speaking exercise.
