Keep a diary.

This thing (COVID-19) that we are all part of, it is living history. It will be talked about for generations to come. Schools are closed, sports are cancelled, people are quarantined on a global level. So, we would like you to keep a journal/diary of this living history event (think Samuel Pepys, without the smelly cheese!) in your diary, record day to day events – photos, drawings, writing, newspaper clippings, activities. Interview people: parents, grandparents (over the phone!) email teachers. You will have created a primary source of your own history to share with generations to come.
