Other ideas…

As well as your topics, why not take this opportunity to learn about some of your family history? You could talk about how your family members grew up and discuss the similarities and differences with your experience. Are there any old photographs/objects you could look at? What information do they give you?

This coronavirus pandemic is a major event in human history and will be talked about for years to come.  Why don’t you keep a diary that you can share with people in years to come.  Imagine reading it to your grandchildren!
