Hey there, Whippersnapper! Are you ready to talk about the pandemic? (No, not that one!) We’re going back in time to get a brief history lesson on the Spanish Flu that ravaged the country and the world over 100 years ago, beginning in 1918. You’ll learn some new information, but you’ll also be surprised by how much of it sounds familiar. You know what they say about history— it often repeats itself. Stay tuned at the end of the video for a trivia challenge about other pandemics and plagues throughout the course of history—even if you don’t know the answers, you will learn something new!
