Helping Kids Learn about COVID-19
Many youth across B.C. are curious and anxious about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. One way to help alleviate concerns and empower young people is to provide trusted information and the opportunity to learn about our shared circumstances. To support parents, caregivers and educators in teaching young people about COVID-19, we've created a series of individual and group learning resources and activities.
To help kids learn about and understand the hazards in B.C., including disease outbreaks, consider starting with our free Master of Disaster youth education program: for disease outbreak content, see page 8 of the Get Ready Guide (PDF, 9.73 MB). You can then supplement this material with the activities and resources below.
