National Geographic Learning, a Cengage company, is offering free COVID-19 lesson plans and resources for teachers to help learners understand the pandemic and its impact. It is offering four lessons, intended for primary to middle school English language learners, that provide essential information for students about COVID-19, what they can do to protect themselves, and how they can make a difference. These lessons provide language support to help students communicate about the virus in English.
Additionally, science, social studies and reading lessons are included as part of the COVID-19 free resources to help teachers provide context, and educate students on the impact of the pandemic. For middle and high school students, these will include a focus on the science of COVID-19 and coronaviruses, a look at how vaccines are developed, and comparisons to the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. Social studies lessons explore the impact of the virus on students’ neighborhoods and the medical community, the economic fallout of the pandemic, and the geographic context for mapping its spread.

Beyond the COVID-19 course materials, National Geographic Learning is providing all US K-12 teachers with free access to its learning platforms for the rest of the school year to support them during this unprecedented period.
