Cover the basics of emails in a talk with the Beavers
* ask them if they know what an email is
* Electronic mail, most commonly called email or e-mail since around 1993, it is a method of exchanging digital messages from an author to one or more recipients. Email operates across the Internet or other computer networks.
* An Internet email message consists of three basic components, the address of the person it's being sent to, a subject, and the message itself although things like attachments can be added
* You can create, forward or reply to emails
* Give the children a task to send an email to the leader as homework, an idea might be to do it as part of themed even. We had a spy theme and sent them home with this
