KIDS Collecting COVID-19

We are living through history right now. In the future, people will want to look back at the year 2020 and learn about what it was like to live through the COVID-19 pandemic. It is the job of museums to collect objects and stories that help people learn about the past. We need you to help us record information about life in quarantine right now!

Want to learn more about what museums do and why we do it? Take a look at this video.

Now what? Help us remember what life was like during quarantine by making something and donating it to the museum.

We are looking for:

Photographs
Drawings
Paintings
Signs
Posters
Scrapbooks
Videos
Poems
Journals
Letters

Take a look at this worksheet to formulate your ideas about the COVID-19 pandemic and your experience. This sheet will also act as your permission form to participate. It can be filled out digitally, or printed and filled out manually. 

Here is the worksheet
