A Science-based Curriculum for the COVID-19 Pandemic
The worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 created the unprecedented need for education about viruses, infectious diseases, disease prevention, and public health in general. The COVID HACKS (healthy actions, community knowledge, and science) project offers lessons and other teaching resources to address these needs.
In this section, you will find informational materials, such as a Guide to Healthy Schools and an overview of COVID-19. You will also find classroom lessons for different grade bands (K–2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12) suitable for use in science, social studies, and even reading classes.
Help your students become more informed about viruses, infectious diseases, and how they can protect themselves, their friends, and their families.
The COVID HACKS curriculum project is made possible thanks to the support from Laura & John Arnold and Baylor College of Medicine. Scientists, educators, and physicians from Baylor College of Medicine provided content, feedback, and technical reviews.
