COVID-19, coronavirus, has impacted students and families throughout the world and has significantly altered our education systems, including out-of-school time programs. The activities and resources in the Learning About COVID-19 Activity Guides were intentionally designed to support youth-serving programs in engaging students in learning about the science of COVID-19 and developing greater social awareness and empathy.
The guide includes 40 activities and challenges organized by four different age groups 5-9; 10-12; 13-15; 16-18. The activities were developed for in-person and virtual instruction, or a hybrid of both, as well as sent as take-home packets.
This Guide has been adapted by the Hawai‘i Afterschool Alliance in partnership with University of Hawai‘i PALS/PLACES to embed the Hawai‘i Department of Education’s Nā Hopena A‘o (HĀ) Framework in the activities.
All activities should be safely executed and aligned with state and local health guidelines.
