This is one mini lesson out of a series of five, this is lesson four and it can be completed alone, or with any of the other lessons.
The student or class will watch a video clip about ciphers, specifically Caesar Ciphers. Next students will learn more about encryption and decryption through the use of "keys". Lastly, students will be introduced to the career path choices as a Cyber-security analyst. This is one lesson out of a series of five, and can be used alone, or with the some or all of the other four lessons.
Observe how computer networks function and make connections to the different ways we communicate (both in written form and modern forms). The students will discuss, in a whole class setting, how information can be communicated electronically and transmitted using computing devices via a network (e.g., email, social media, video conferencing, blogging).
This resources is for students to take notes about LAN and WAN computer networks so they can compare and contrast the two.
This Quizlet Study Set contains Elementary (K-5) vocabulary from the "Networking and the Internet" strand of the Virginia Standards of Learning for Computer Science. Students can study the flashcards and play games to test themselves on the terms.
The following resources is a link that will allow the user to play a matching game from Flippity.net using the vocabulary words from the Comptuer Science SOL 4.18-The student will identify and explain different ways information can be transmitted using computing devices via a network (e.g., email, images, and videos).

Computers use sorting to direct information across a network. This activity is a simulated representation of how a computer might sort information through a network. Students will compare decimals and place them in boxes along the guiding arrows. Each box will contain 2 decimals. Students are to compare the two decimals in each box, then move the greater decimal forward to the next box on the right, The lesser decimal will be moved to the next box on the left. Each time the decimals are moved forward, the decimals in the boxes are compared and then moved to the appropriate box according to the rule (lesser: left, greater: right).Once each number has been moved to the circles at the top of end of the sort, the decimals should be in order from least to greatest. This is a variation of the activity foud here: https://www.csunplugged.org/en/resources/sorting-network/
This interactive lesson teaches middle school students about how information is delivered via the internet.
