What an amazing impromptu presentation by Flavio! Beth- you were missed but these things happen!
Alexandra Wakely
01:49:29
Thank you for joining us everyone—you are listening to the science behind NSTA Science Update: COVID-19: Don’t Panic but Know the Science

Keep in mind that these slides are available in the collection that Don just posted—bookmark that site!
April Luehmann
01:51:08
thanks
Richard Jones
01:51:30
According to https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 is is 65,285 at 12:30 PM HST
Alexandra Wakely
01:51:54
Amazing that even as of this morning, our slide became out of date. Shows you the power of the growth
Lakshmi Nayak
01:53:04
Maybe it's due to increased testing, that would be nice
Laura Walls
01:53:37
Some think viruses are more highly evolved.
Alexandra Wakely
01:53:49
Start thinking of your questions and typing them here— we’ll have a question break coming up
Dan Adler
01:54:15
If viruses aren't technically organisms, do we still say they can evolve?
Lakshmi Nayak
01:54:16
Which hypothesis do you favor, and why?
Julie Morris
01:54:40
Do you know the origin story of COVID 19? I've heard bats and/or pandolins.
Tammy Fay
01:54:42
What is the origin of the CORVID 19 virus?
trimblem
01:55:01
How is this different from the virus that caused swine flu? I’m thinking back to the swine flu that killed 500,000 people, but never seemed to have such a presence in the US. What is causing that difference?
Michelle
01:55:22
When do you believe the "flattening of the curve" with occur this growing virus?
Tammy Fay
01:55:35
Do the receptor proteins on CORVID-19 have any similarity to H1N1?
elizabeth
01:55:46
what makes sars different from covid 19
whitney.steele
01:55:58
Can you revisit the last hypothesis about viruses?
sofiaduarte
01:56:04
How does this outbreak compare to others that we have had in the past?
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310
01:56:46
oh wow, I remember some of this. how does it penetrate into the host? does it rip it open or how?
Adam Lifsics
01:57:17
Which cells specifically is the virus targeting in humans?
Ann-Margaret Somers
01:57:33
Adam - I have the same question.
Adam Lifsics
01:57:46
:)
Bryan
01:57:54
does an RNA virus replicate faster than a DNA virus?
Lori Soraparu
01:58:53
So is their envelope (capsid?) really just made of eukaryotic cell membrane (I know that's very simplistic idea)
eallan
01:59:11
no i'm not
Heather Willhide
02:00:01
Im too obsessed with the shape of this person's teeth to notice the spots
Randy Russell - Colorado
02:00:20
FYI: Educational Simulations & Games about disease spread: https://flyrussell.com/reviews-disease
Alexandra Wakely
02:00:34
Thanks Randy!
Ashley Pirilla (Uhrine)
02:01:04
Thank you, Randy!
eallan
02:01:37
RNA virus replication uses the same mechanism as DNA with different bases.
Alexandra Wakely
02:01:48
Thank you Beth!
Alexandra Wakely
02:02:15
We’ll do our best to mine for your questions that don’t get answered by Bob’s next few slides
Elizabeth Allan
02:02:19
The virus is replicating in the cell making multiple copies
prichardson
02:02:26
You mentioned virus enzymes as part of the cell infection. Do most human viruses have some of their own enzymes? I always thought the only virus enzyme was reverse transcriptase.
trimblem
02:02:38
Do you know the molecular structure for the chemical(s) responsible for the cytokine storm?
Bryan
02:02:42
Does an RNA virus have to invade the nucleus or can it begin protein synthesis directly after injection/infection?
Alexandra Wakely
02:03:02
Elizabeth will help us answer some of them here in the chat too!
Elizabeth Allan
02:03:04
Trimblem- we can post it later
Adam Lifsics
02:03:41
RNA viruses basically use reverse transcription to tun into DNA and then can enter the DNA code within the nucleus
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310
02:04:17
I heard the word SARS before
Alexandra Wakely
02:04:33
Different types of coronavirus—COVID-19 is the disease we are discussing tonight
Tammy Fay
02:05:18
Is there evidence of zoonotic transmission of coronavirus?
Elizabeth Allan
02:05:27
Yes- he will cover that in future slides
Adam Lifsics
02:05:35
Why is this strain of the coronavirus so much more infections and efficient compared to SARS and MERS?
Rebecca
02:05:43
What are the theories for future viruses related to SARS? 5 years from now? 10 years? Do scientists think there may be one worse than Covid?
David Barnes
02:06:15
Do we know what difference from SARS makes Covid-19 so much more impactful?
Laura Walls
02:06:17
Ebola came from bats too
Steve
02:06:24
Any resources on fall rate - how long does it remain in the air on average?
Kamal Preet
02:06:32
Is Corona virus mutating?
Alexandra Wakely
02:06:36
Hopefully this one answers your questions from earlierTammy and Julie
Rebekah
02:06:52
Will these slides be shared with us? This slide in particular addresses many of my students' questions!
Elizabeth Allan
02:06:55
that’s a great question. The viruses are constantly mutating and consequentially there will always be new virus infections
Lakshmi Nayak
02:07:01
I hope this doesn't cause people to go kill bats. That happened a bit after the last one, I think.
Alexandra Wakely
02:07:22
Definitely Rebekah; you can check out the collection here
Flavio Mendez
02:07:22

Elizabeth Allan
02:07:42
he will answer why this virus is so much more impactful but it has to do with how easily we can catch it.
Rebekah
02:07:58
Thank you!
Kamal Preet
02:08:05
Has there been a spike in zoonotic diseases of late? or is it because we are better connected know?
Lakshmi Nayak
02:08:07
Speaking of MERS, doesn't that show how warm weather does not have aa diminishing effect?
Elizabeth Allan
02:08:14
I agree Lakshmi- bats are extremely valuable ecologically
Maria Brown
02:08:41
Bats have amazing immune systems and therefore are great Reserviors for diseases, but they provide amazing ecosystem services, I hope this does not cause people to go on a surge for killing bats! Bats are most closely related to the Pengolin!
Elizabeth Allan
02:08:41
Good point Lakshmi- we just don’t know enough yet about what will happen when it gets warmer.
Mary Holmgren
02:09:22
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/28/science/bats-coronavirus-Wuhan.html Great article on bats and their viruses
Kamal Preet
02:09:32
How does handwashing help?
Elizabeth Allan
02:09:50
Kamal, it destroys the envelope and reduces the chance of you getting sick
Alexandra Wakely
02:09:55
THat’s why we distance 6 feet!
Dan Prostinak
02:10:13
Can it spread through vaping?
Lakshmi Nayak
02:10:17
Great article by Palli Thorardson on hand washing
April Luehmann
02:10:22
Hand washing video I like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LKVUarhtvE&feature=emb_logo
Elizabeth Allan
02:10:28
Yes Alexandra- but we also have to be careful with touching things. However, those are in the lab and not in real life
Lelia Youn
02:10:36
@Kamal, building on to Elizabeth, if you get rid of the envelope, it gets ride of the spike proteins so the virus can’t bind to the ACE-2 receptors
Flavio Mendez
02:10:37
Great conversation on chat...keep it going!
Elizabeth Allan
02:10:51
yes, it can spread through vaping if there are respiratory droplets.
Kate Soriano
02:11:02
Kamal, you literally wash the virus down the drain. The virus on your hands. People infect themselves and others when they don't wash their hands and then touch their eyes, nose and mouth
Kamal Preet
02:11:12
Can it spread through infected water?
Dan Prostinak
02:11:19
Thank you Elizabeth :)
Lakshmi Nayak
02:11:20
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/mar/12/science-soap-kills-coronavirus-alcohol-based-disinfectants
trimblem
02:11:22
so just to clarify, these droplets must come from sneeze/cough, as opposed to simple water vapor from breathing?
Kamal Preet
02:12:41
Will it spread through air conditioning?
Adam Lifsics
02:12:43
Since the first SARS has a larger Ro than COVID-19, then what is making COVID-19 so much more efficient right now?
Edmond Zahedi
02:12:52
Is Ro defined for a specific period of time? For ex. 2.2 persons infected every day?
trimblem
02:13:04
I second Adam’s question
Danielle Brenner
02:13:06
thinking the same thing Adam
Elizabeth Allan
02:13:35
That’s a great question Trimblem- it can spread so long as the virus can survive and be collected by someone else. Mucus membranes have the virus and contact or spread through mucus or coughing can spread the disease
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310
02:13:38
So is the Pneumonia caused by the body?
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310
02:13:49
like a fever?
Elizabeth Allan
02:14:13
Pneumonia is caused by the fluid in the lungs.
Mila
02:14:24
Why does our body cause fluid to fill in the lungs?
Sonia Thomas
02:14:44
Inflamatory response
Danielle Brenner
02:14:45
It's a response to the cytokine process
Elizabeth Allan
02:14:57
It’s the response to the virus. Once you progress to ARDS then you are much more critical and may need help breathing
elizabeth
02:15:41
what is ards
Lakshmi Nayak
02:16:03
acute respiratory … distress syndrome?
Mila
02:16:05
I understand it is part of the inflammatory response, but why does it cause the fluid? Is it due to trying to remove the virus, trying to cause more movement of immune cells?
Elizabeth Allan
02:16:36
Advanced Respiratory Distress Syndrome Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a type of respiratory failure characterized by rapid onset of widespread inflammation in the lungs. Symptoms include shortness of breath, rapid breathing, and bluish skin coloration. Among those who survive, a decreased quality of life is relatively common.
Danielle Brenner
02:16:37
same as the response in nasal cavity...try to produce mucus to clear infection
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310
02:17:21
ooh okay
Alexandra Wakely
02:18:21
Wow
Lakshmi Nayak
02:18:27
WHy didn't we use the tests made available by WHO? Or now, states that are short on tests, why don't we?
Elizabeth Allan
02:18:35
The response to the virus is the increase of mucus to protect from future infection and to help, as Danielle said, to clear the infection
Elizabeth Allan
02:19:24
The original test had reactants that were defective.
E. Sadıkoğlu
02:19:50
The clinical spectrum of COVID-19 varies from asymptomatic or paucisymptomatic forms to clinical conditions characterized by respiratory failure that necessitates mechanical ventilation and support in an intensive care unit (ICU), to multiorgan and systemic manifestations in terms of sepsis, septic shock, and multiple organ dysfunction syndromes (MODS).
Lakshmi Nayak
02:19:53
The CDC test did, yes. But I thought there was WHO test made in Germany that was/is out there
Elizabeth Allan
02:20:18
That’s correct. Why we did not use test from Germany I do not have an answer for.
Bryan
02:20:37
isn't there a quicker test now?
Maria Brown
02:20:54
New York will be out of ICU beds and ventilators by Friday...I have RtPCR capabilities in my HS lab...how can we help Ne wYorkers right now?
Maria Brown
02:21:16
It will help everyone later one!
Elizabeth Allan
02:21:27
E.- there are daily updates from the CDC that help keep us up to date on the symptoms and they seem to be changing. That’s why checking regularly in with vetted sources is a great idea.
Elizabeth Allan
02:22:00
Bryan- he is answering it now
STACEY MCGUIRE
02:22:10
Why doesn’t everybody slow down with the questions and just listen and wait to see if any of them are answered…
Elizabeth Allan
02:22:16
It is not ever going to be as sensitive and they will often be false negatives
meghandonovan
02:22:34
I agree stacey
STACEY MCGUIRE
02:22:50
love ya Meg
Lakshmi Nayak
02:23:11
For anyone with 3D printer access (FabLab?) I believe google is working on a project to print medical-grade masks
Emily Tyndorf
02:23:17
What companies are doing these rapid tests?
Caroline Pechuzal
02:23:22
Are current antiviral drugs affective in treating covid 19 symptoms?
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310
02:24:02
Do you think that the death stats are not that important currently because the data is too early and there are not enough tests?
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310
02:24:14
or at least the stats that the media is quoting
aalvarez
02:24:15
Whats your prediction on a timeframe as far as a treatment vaccine or cure
Kamal Preet
02:24:19
Why do we have reports of people who have been cured & released from hospitals dying because of corona virus?
Lori Soraparu
02:24:23
Does the Rapid test using the detection of a person's antibodies that were swabbed or the viral RNA?
Steve
02:24:23
Is there info on fall rates? How long on average it remains in the air on average?
Elizabeth Allan
02:25:15
Steve- not yet
Lakshmi Nayak
02:25:46
I;m so sorry, I missed the explanation about the virus in water. Could someone recap here in chat?
Steve
02:25:51
Thank you
Zoe Patricoski
02:26:09
If you have COVID-19, how long are you contagious for?
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310
02:26:10
It's not very stable in water this corona virus @lakshimi
Benjamin S
02:26:13
How do I explain to my mother-in-law that this is much more serious than the flu, when the flu statistically has killed more people?
Quyen
02:26:49
The shedding peruiod
Quyen
02:26:53
period
Elizabeth Allan
02:26:58
Envelope viruses are not very stable in water- so it’s theoretically possible but not likely to get it in water.
Rebekah
02:27:16
Great question Ben!
Laura Walls
02:27:16
Does the shedding period affect the R0?
iPad
02:27:25
say again the she’d duration please
trimblem
02:27:32
So if people are “shedding” virus before they are symtomatic, but spreading the disease occurs through coughing, how does this spread work while people are asymptomatic???
Travis McKinley
02:27:59
It has been reported that people who have the virus do not always have a cough as a symptom. Is this accurate?
Kate Soriano
02:28:08
Benjamin if the health care system gets overwhelmed health care providers will have to make choices about who to help. Not all will be served
Alexandra Wakely
02:28:12
The next few slides Dr. Brennan will talk about prevention, vaccines, and when it will go away!
cegger
02:28:31
I don't think anyone was trying to substitute this webinar for a doctor visit...?
Lakshmi Nayak
02:28:43
Trimblem, good question
Elizabeth Allan
02:28:49
agreed cegger
yevgeny
02:29:00
What is the current of mutation?
Steve
02:29:06
Any recommendations on teaching the size/scale of the virus?
Elizabeth Allan
02:29:07
Just making sure everyone knows to keep looking to the experts as this progresses
Alexandra Wakely
02:29:07
Collection URL (adding slides later):https://learningcenter.nsta.org/mylibrary/collection.aspx?id=a!plus!Uqit2h15w_E
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310
02:29:08
Do you think that stats are too early to be acurate?
Caroline Pechuzal
02:29:25
I think it's important information to communicate, nonetheless! I appreciate your reminder that this does not substitute medical advice.
yevgeny
02:29:28
Hey Astma
Lakshmi Nayak
02:29:32
That makes sense, thank you
Mahala Archer
02:29:40
can non bleach, alcohol substances kill the virus like vinegar?
Elizabeth Allan
02:29:52
Yes they do Mahala
Elizabeth Allan
02:30:05
but make sure they have enough alcohol in them
Laurel Harrison
02:30:31
Better wording: deactivate rather thank "kill", a virius is not living
REBECCA DELACRUZ
02:30:35
@mahala I believe he's stating that info now.
yevgeny
02:30:38
So, if we are using so many chemicals, would we not create other problems, such as resistant organisms.
Laura Walls
02:30:47
Good job, Laurel.
Joy
02:31:08
Yevgeny, I have had the same question. Not so much with soap and water/washing hands, but antibacterial substances.
Alexandra Wakely
02:31:21
Interesting point Yevgeny.
Alexandra Wakely
02:32:20
I would think the extra hand washing can’t hurt, but I guess it depends on the chemicals in the products we use
Kamal Preet
02:32:27
why are sanitizers more effective than alcohol?
Mary Bigelow
02:32:36
Probably a good idea to get underneath rings, too.
Elizabeth Allan
02:32:42
Often people wash their hands well but don’t wash their thumbs or the tips of their fingers
REBECCA DELACRUZ
02:32:55
Is Benzalkonium chloride 0.1% just as effective as 60% alcohol?
Kimberly Ramos
02:33:10
Why is copper antimicrobial?
Steve
02:33:21
Any recommendations on teaching size & scale of a virus.. not Utah genetics.. but something else..
Amanda Smialek
02:33:31
will the alcohol content break down overtime after being opened and reduce the effectiveness
Alexandra Wakely
02:34:08
Thank you for that. Excellent reasoning.
Yolanda Lyon
02:34:16
Does Ibuprophen/Advil put people at more risk for contraction of COVID 19? Social media is spreading this.
Danielle Brenner
02:34:22
Yevgeny, overall possibly not washing hands etc helps our body get small doses of viruses therefore allowing our body to recognize and build immunity. However, during a hot and heavy outbreak trying to stop a quick spread, washing is best. Kind of like I pulled on weed and not so big a deal, I'll eat my chip. Versus digging in the garden for a while and getting muddy, think I'll wash!
Kate Soriano
02:34:42
Steve, how about the Powers of Ten video?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fKBhvDjuy0
Kate Soriano
02:35:00
as place to start
Elizabeth Allan
02:35:19
Yolanda, it seems that it increases the inflammation response. There is no official warning that I’m aware of
Kamal Preet
02:35:22
any resources to explain the structure of corona virus to middle schoolers?
Mahala Archer
02:35:24
someone needs to make an updated Powers of Ten video
Sonia Thomas
02:35:25
Where can I find the handwashing image in the last slide?
Elizabeth Allan
02:35:36
It will be posted in the slides.
yevgeny
02:35:39
Sure, I am totally understand the idea of washing hands but constant washing will not any impact of positive bacteria on our skin?
Laurel Harrison
02:35:41
Great video - there is now also an updated version with James Earl Jones narrating
Steve
02:35:47
I am thinking is there anything to manipulate & make sense of … I enjoy the powers of 10 video... iits awesome.. but trying to find more concrete
Kate Soriano
02:35:52
Thanks for that tip, Laurel
Danielle Brenner
02:36:24
I would agree with you Yevgeny. But I think it's just the thought of immediate outbreak.
E. Sadıkoğlu
02:36:25
Wash their hands frequently, especially after contact w/ sick people or their environment.
Alexandra Wakely
02:36:26
Kamal, check out the collection for some resources, but also the last portion of the presentation Will will be sharing resources for teachers
Caroline Pechuzal
02:36:32
What if you live in a dry environment like the desert and any moisture evaporates in less than 3 minutes?
Caroline Pechuzal
02:36:53
Less than 1 minute on most surfaces
Danielle Brenner
02:37:00
And the possible sharing Yevgeny to those more susceptible to getting sick
Kate Soriano
02:37:08
Updated Powers of Ten (2019) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44cv416bKP4
Richard Jones
02:37:25
https://gettingworse.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/hand_washing_poster.jpg should be the same image…
Elizabeth Allan
02:37:55
Caroline, it doesn’t keep you safe. You are still at risk. The virus can survive on dry surfaces as well.
Ann-Margaret Somers
02:38:11
Kate - Powers of Ten is great!!

Do you think this virus here to stay?
Alexandra Wakely
02:38:28
When will it go away is the next slide!
Mahala Archer
02:38:33
there are some great videos on viruses on PBSlearning and one on hand sanitizer and handwashing on mystery science for middle school
Caroline Pechuzal
02:38:43
To clarify, my question was if we are supposed to keep a disinfectant wet on a surface, what do we do if we can't? I don't presume that this makes us safer
Lakshmi Nayak
02:39:19
Oh, this is what Governor Cuomo was referring to. I didn't know the history
Elizabeth Allan
02:39:22
I understand the question now Caroline- as the disinfectant dries, it will dehydrate and destroy the envelope.
yevgeny
02:39:31
Hey, let us have virus party?
Joy
02:39:43
I guess the question is whether such an extreme uptick in specifically antibacterial products (not just regular soap) would have any influence on resistant bacteria, like antibiotic overuse/misuse
Laurel Harrison

What is herd immunity?
REBECCA DELACRUZ
02:40:34
So this means we if we get the virus there is a possibility that we will not get it again, but we are able to be carriers?
Alexandra Wakely
02:40:35
Also, keep the conversation going in the discussion forum! http://learningcenter.nsta.org/discuss

If you contract Covid-19 and recover are you immune from then on?
Richard Jones
02:41:07
Didn’t Spanish Flu have a re-surge in the Northern Hemisphere fall?
Nader Emamjomeh
02:41:17
Can people who have developed an immunity to this virus still spread it? Specifically I am referring to people who have caught it and since gotten better.
David Barnes
02:41:38
Richard, yes.
Sonia Thomas
02:41:41
In other words how long is the virus being shedded
Elizabeth Allan
02:41:51
Good questions- we are not sure about re-infection or immunity. We just don’t have the data yet
Richard Jones
02:42:16
I hope COVID-19 doesn’t have a re-surge in the Fall….

How does this affect someone's immune system after they've recovered?
bdavis

I have seen some things going around saying that taking ibuprofen is causing symptoms to become worsens symptoms of COVID-19. I am guessing there is not enough evidence to prove this yet but am worried about a lot of misinformation going around
trimblem
02:43:43
some type of COVID-19 vaccine trial just started in SF…does anyone know what type of vaccine this was?
annecaron
02:44:05
Would it be possible to reuse SARS vaccines in this COVID outbreak? Make the time to market faster maybe?
Sonia Thomas
02:44:54
Unlikely, different genetics

Are certain blood types impacted more than others?
Ann-Margaret Somers

Trump continues to reference a malaria medication that looks promising. What is he referring to?
Matt Morse
02:45:45
How does the yearly flu shot differ from the development of the vaccine you are describing now? Flu shots usually target a specific strand each year, how is this achieved in one year and not 7-10 years?
Heather Willhide
02:46:08
That was my exact question Matt
Elizabeth Allan

Chloroquinine or something like that…same/similar compound contained in dechlorinating compound for fish tanks
Elizabeth Allan
02:46:32
Matt- that’s a great question we can get Bob to answer
REBECCA DELACRUZ
02:46:59
No, it's not.
Sonia Thomas
02:47:01
Flu shots do not provide permanent immunity
Lakshmi Nayak
02:47:07
One of my students had also heard that blood types are affected differently by this virus
Richard Jones
02:47:09
Chloroquinine, I took that for malaria years ago
Don Boonstra
02:47:11
A person in Arizona just died by taking the Chloroquine for fish tanks and the wife if critical.
Alexandra Wakely
02:47:26
I saw that story Don. So terrible.
Danielle Brenner
02:47:38
We have years of history with the flu strains and their genetic material. Pick a few that were popular last year and put them in the vaccine. They have had years of working on them
Philip Scamardella SCE 4310

What is the RO again?
Lesley Urasky
02:48:32
Hydroxychloroquine or plaquenil is the anti-malarial that's been referenced It's commonly prescribed to people with rheumatoid arthritis.
Lakshmi Nayak
02:49:22
Any way to track down this blood type idea? I Havne
Elizabeth Allan
02:49:37
RO is a mathematical term. R0 tells you the average number of people who will catch a disease from one contagious person.
Chris Gabriel
02:49:45
We have gone from 2 strains of flu covered by the vaccinations to 4 strains. We cannot vaccinate for all strains. They guess at which 4 are to be vaccinated for the year.
Alexandra Wakely
02:49:50
If you stick around after the survey, we can ask Bob to answer that one Lakshmi
Susan Kelly

I used the 9-12 lesson with my Science for Educators students a week and a half before (Mar. 4) we shut down our university. My students and I learned quite a bit about the virus and it helped prepare me and my family for the eventual shut down.

If you don’t get ScienceTeacher, you can get his article by searching in the Learning Center for “Novel Wuhan Coronavirus
rbrennan1
02:57:09
Matt, the yearly flu vaccine doesn't take 7-10 years to develop because it is based on a standard practice, safety, and efficacy data from previous vaccines. The original flu vaccine was developed in 1938, 7 years after the flu virus was identified. Does that help?
rbrennan1
02:57:20
Chloroquine/hydroxychloroquine works in one way by altering the pH of cellular compartments, which inhibits replication of malaria. For this coronavirus, the pH piece is thought to play a role as well as being able to block the host cell receptor for the virus. Still need a lot more clinical data to know how effective it really is.
Kate Soriano
02:57:23
Search the NSTA Learning Center "Coronavirus" Wuhan was removed because viruses/germs specifically not named after where it originated to avoid prejudices
ceciliahernandez

The SF vaccine trial is an RNA vaccine. To note, there are no other approved and licensed RNA vaccines. This is a relatively new strategy. Will be fascinating to see how it develops.

Daily Do activities are designed to help students “make sense” out of science by having teachers or parents share a sensemaking task. These activities provide a great time for family science learning.
Steve
03:02:36
Thanks again.

Kate, my students (university students) had many of the same information although they were a bit more cynical about Social Media and were ready and willing to do the research and discuss their thoughts.
Trish Shelton

I've noticed that several of the activities seem to be things that require discussion. How can we do this when we have no ability for discussion? I won't see my students until mid April, if I am lucky?
ceciliahernandez
03:04:59
I really liked the “My feelings” aspect of the lesson because it does get at how the general population reacts to information coming from the scientific community. This give the students a chance to step back from the feelings and use the research to discuss and “argue from evidence” to refute or support what they have “heard” online.
Kate Soriano
03:05:01
Mahala, they are designed to be used for distance learning and home learning. Suggestions included for both
REBECCA DELACRUZ
03:05:07
A few of my 4th graders were not familiar with the virus in itself as they were interested in jokes that they hear on social media. My mentor teacher decided to show them a video of how illnesses and/or diseases spread and ways to prevent the spread of germs. After that, they definitely began washing their hands instead of just saying so, and cleaning after themselves when transitioning from one subject to another. I forgot to mention this is all in a self-contained classroom. :)
