June’s 16th birthday is next week. She’s wondering how she can celebrate and be safe. June asked her friends, “Will I get the coronavirus if I get a haircut, go to the bakery, or play basketball with my friends?

Review, Reflect, & Discuss

  1. Review the 2 infographics.
  2. Find an activity on one of the infographics that you would like to take part in.
  3. Make a claim as to whether it is safe or not for you to participate in that activity.
  4. How do you know? What evidence do you have to support your claim?
  5. Identify at least 2 more activities, then repeat the process.
  6. In some cases the need to participate in an activity may outweigh the risk, like going to the doctor or emergency room. Use claim, evidence and reasoning for this, too.
