Reading texts and pulling meaningful information from them is one of the many small steps students can take to start leading a more independent life. With more and more communication being done through texting, it is a perfect opportunity for students to learn how to spot scams being targeted to them by fraudulent accounts. This DIGITAL activity provides students with a variety of sample spam text messages that they will read and answer comprehension questions about. A total of TEN texts and FIFTY comprehension questions are included with your purchase.

This activity is specifically formatted to be used with Google Drive and is compatible with Google Classroom. Google Drive is an amazing resource that many educators are now using as an interface to support 1:1 digital instruction in the classroom. I pair it up with Google Classroom (a free website) that allows me to digitally send each student in my class a copy of the worksheets that they later submit to me for grading. With this lesson, students get to type their responses directly onto the digital worksheet. It is an amazing paper-free process and the kids LOVE working on these worksheets on the computer. 

Each worksheet consists of a realistic spam text that students might receive. This lesson presents them with some classic scams to get them more familiarized with red flags they may encounter. Although initially designed for special education life skills students, this would be a great lesson for any teacher to integrate into their curriculum to bring real world reading and writing skills into the classroom.

Purchase Includes DIGITAL ACCESS To: 

  • Ten sample spam text messages
  • Five comprehension questions per text message
  • A total of fifty comprehension questions included
