Year 5 caught out with a hoax! 🌴🐙

Year 5s were given the learning objective of ‘Checking sources of information’ today. They were given a website address and were told to research facts all about an endangered tree octopus! There were some weird looks but off they went! Only later when I asked if they had checked for other sources of information did they realise they had been hoaxed by a false site! They now know to fact check any information they receive – a useful tool in an ever growing ‘fake news’ society!
