Free, Emergency Virtual-Learning Resources for Every School

As schools across the United States implement and prepare for school closures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their communities, Britannica is ensuring free, emergency support and virtual-learning classroom resources to every school. Over the past two months, we have been working with our partner schools across the world, as 107 countries have implemented nationwide closures, impacting over 861.7 million children and youth. (UNESCO) While your school or district reviews preparedness plans, we invite you to take advantage of Britannica LaunchPacks Social Studies and LaunchPacks Science. These free resources are being leveraged by schools across the globe who are grappling with shutdowns and working to minimize the impact on students, families, and staff.
