Explaining Corona Virus to Kids

Octopus washing tentacles

Times are crazy, weird, hard, all of the above! Here at UN|HUSHED we write curriculum on hard topics the easy way, sex ed done right. The thing is, sex ed is more than just “sex”. It’s about relationships, communication, and so much more. That’s why we’re all about medically accurate information. We’re all about helping our fellow humans. And we’re all about washing your hands!

So, one of our amazing curriculum writers, Jessica Smarr, has created the following free Session, “Explaining Corona Virus to Kids“.

Here are quick links to the different sections of the session:


Why Talk About Coronavirus? And How?

Answering their Question: What is Coronavirus?

Answering the Question: What can we do about it?

Activity 1: How do we wash our hands?

Activity 2: How do germs spread? And why do we use soap?

Activity 3: Obstacle course!

If you do decide to try some of these out, please let us know how it goes! If you are sharing pictures on social media, we would be absolutely tickled pink if you tagged us #unhushed.

If you are looking for more activities, don’t hesitate to get in touch! We’d love to chat about your experiences (leave a comment below) and know what your kids might be interested in next.
