Facebook has a series of short videos on their YouTube channel which are great story starters. Check out Neesha. This short vid shows a great deal about her life in India yet she isn't connected to the Internet. Perhaps your students could compose a list of questions they would like to know about after watching this. Perhaps they could write a diary journal after researching about something they see in the video. Older elementary and middle schoolers may want to create a fake Facebook page for Neesha. Or maybe a persuasive letter to Verizon or another internet company asking for them to provide service for Neesha. This would also be a wonderful Internet Safety review. She the video and then discuss what advice they would offer Neesha if she ever gets connected to the net.
YouTube is one of my favorite go-tos for instructional resources! Check out this sweet video.
