Covid-19 Journal

Right now you are living through an event that will be part of the history your children and grandchildren study in school. That means that you have a chance to write a primary source that someone in the future could use to study history! Historians look at people's diaries and journals (usually after they have been donated to historical societies). Your kids or grandkids might have assignments to find out what you did during the Pandemic of 2020. What would they want to know about your life at this time? 1. Click the button to add a response, and choose the drawing. 2. Use a combination of words and pictures to answer one or more of the journal prompts provided by your teacher. If you'd like, you can :record: record yourself drawing and talking. If you need more help to get started, use one of these to get your ideas flowing: What is different about your life now than it was a few months ago? What are you hearing about Covid-19? Where do you get information most of the time? (Look up a news story if you need to.) What does social distancing mean to you? What have you learned about yourself during this pandemic? 3. If you need to stop and come back to it, tap the button. 4. When you are finished, tap the to turn it in to your teacher.
