Lesson Plan (Grades 4-12): Media Awareness and Critical Thinking with COVID-19
Created by a middle and high school teacher, Canada
I've been busy trying to organize to teach online and I wanted to do something that relates to what's going on with COVID-19 in a way that will help my students be more media aware. So, I developed this lesson plan and worksheets to go along with a lesson already prepared on Kids Boost Immunity on critical thinking and being aware of bias.
Teachers can adapt the lesson plan and supporting as needed to work for younger students (grades 4-6).
