Coronovirus: Lessons to help children deal with the changes they are experiencing

We found these great lessons to help children understand and deal with this crisis. they were developed in Australia because of the bush fires but they are SO relevant to what our children are going through. Use them if you are in school teaching children or with some adaptations use them for ZOOM or Microsoft Teams online lessons. I'm going to try them with a Y6 ZOOM class after Easter.
