Educational Resources for Children

In response to the steady stream of swine flu questions from children across the country, launched a new, free topic about the virus and its impact. Educators and parents are encouraged to use this content as age-appropriate tools for gently explaining the swine flu,its origins, its spread, and appropriate precautions. The swine flu movie is supported by a swine flu quiz and an FYI on hand washing. BrainPOP Jr. offers a related topic on washing hands, while the BrainPOP Educators blog features tips for discussing the swine flu in class.
