What If … Questions About Face Coverings from the Child’s Perspective

The COVID-19 pandemic, and its associated social distancing practices, can leave many young children wondering how to handle confusing situations. “What if I have to sneeze? What if someone wants to touch my mask? What if someone teases me about my face covering?” Knowing that many parents, caregivers, and teachers will be answering these questions, we have created a series of educational slides to use when presenting them to children. 

powerpoint Use these PowerPoint slides one at a time or as a full set to teach children how to handle stressful situations. The slides can be shown on small screens such as tablets, displayed on larger screens for in-person learning, or shown in virtual classrooms.
