Build Better Passwords Worksheet

Passwords are the first line of defense in protecting your personal information and children may need to start using passwords from an early age. These worksheets help children build better passwords by focusing on the most important factor in password strength: length. There are multiple worksheets, each with 24 images. The instructions ask the person to select four images then write a story to connect them. This worksheet was inspired by an xkcd comic illustrating this approach to password creation.

How can libraries use this resource? Like Password Mania, these worksheets help children learn how to build stronger passwords. Library staff may incorporate these worksheets into existing programming that covers technology use, or print out copies to make available to children to complete in the library or take home. The worksheets can be completed without any interaction or feedback from adults, although it could be fun for children to share their words and stories with each other.
