Animation & Story Book Explaining the Coronavirus to Children (INEQUE)

The virus has brought monumental change to how we teach and care for children and young people. The virus presents a particular challenge for a lot of younger children as they adapt to new social distancing measures and forms of learning.

To support different forms of learning, Jim Gamble's team at Inqeue have prepared a short animation, a story book and an activity to support teachers and parents tackle misinformation and help children understand Coronavirus.
