A group of Kumpf middle schoolers were asked to create a public service announcement about the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on their community.

This project-based learning assignment was given to seventh grade student in Mrs. Daneille Bihuniak and Ms. Annemarie Lamberti’s seventh grade science classes

 Students were a given a research outline and rubric to use as a guide while performing research to complete the project. Students were asked to create an announcement that would answer these questions:

  • What is a pandemic?
  • What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
  • What are some things a person can do to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19?
  • What 3 things the students would be doing personally to stay healthy and happy while under the “stay at home order”?

According to school officials, in the end, student videos included either images and text with voice over narration or actual video footage of themselves reporting on COVID-19. Some students even interviewed family members. 

 “I am so proud of the work my students have put into these projects. Students did an excellent job of covering the spread of COVID-19 and the precautionary actions that are advised for all of us to stay healthy,” said Bihuniak. “As is often the case, younger generations tend to have a unique perspective on world events. It is evident from these videos that students are definitely missing their traditional classes and friends but are truly enjoying the increased amount of family time the stay at home order has created.”
