Millions of children across the country have seen their lives upended by the coronavirus pandemic. As schools have closed, social distancing policies have been put into place, and so many other decisions have been made to impact their lives, an important question must be asked. What if children have the answers we've been looking for?

thinkLaw Founder/CEO Colin Seale takes students through a two-part critical thinking lesson to engage students of all age into creative problem solving to help ease the difficulty of social distancing.

In Part 1, students will go through a root cause analysis. Why is social distancing so hard? They will select their favorite root cause and begin to brainstorm solutions that will address the problem. In Part 2 students will go through the design process and several other critical thinking exercises to make their idea a reality!

This FREE Download includes:

- Access to a video of Colin teaching the lesson or, if you prefer, a copy of the PowerPoint/Google Slides that Colin uses

- Student handouts that are available as Word Documents, editable PDFs, and Google Docs

- Parent/Teacher information letter that includes link to the Google Drive. The video is available on the Google Drive and on YouTube.
