This lesson demonstrates concepts related to sending and receiving email messages. If students want to send and receive real messages outside of the lesson interface, they will need to have email accounts.
When students address a message form to multiple recipients in this lesson, the email addresses are separated by a comma. In Outlook, you can also separate email addresses with a semicolon.
You might want to remind students that they type the at symbol (@) by holding Shift and pressing the 2 key.
You might want to introduce Amelia Earhart as the first woman to fly across the Atlantic ocean on June 17, 1928. For this feat, she was a passenger. A few years later on May 20, 1932, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic.
Flying cockroaches are mentioned in this lesson because they lived 350 million years ago and are thought to be the first flying animal by scientists.
This lesson discusses deleting spam and messages from unfamiliar senders. You might also want to describe an email attachment and then emphasize that students should never open an attachment unless they are positive that they know who sent it and they are expecting to receive the attachment. Most computer viruses spread through email attachments.
