Digital Citizenship - Everything you ever need to know about the Tree Octopus!

Today Ms Fothergill shared this url with us about the Tree Octopus, and asked us to take notes, which we recorded on Padlet.

A few of us were a bit dubious about the Tree Octopus, but we did the task anyway - of course we trusted Ms F! Well, not quite all of us... Zach wanted to google it but Ms F stopped him, and Alex managed to search Wikipedia before she had a chance.
What did Alex find? That the Octopus website is a HOAX!
It was created with the purpose of teaching us not to believe everything we read or see on the Internet.
It is always a good idea to visit 3-4 different websites when we are researching, to make sure we get the facts straight!
