CLEVELAND — With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic sweeping the nation and schools closed across the country because of it, the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton is stepping up to help students.
On Friday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced it would offer virtual learning programs that kids could access online, featuring videos, 15-20-minute programs easily accessible on YouTube and even lesson plans from the Hall of Fame’s Youth and Education Programs that can be printed out and filled out with pens or pencils.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame acknowledged this can be a difficult time for schools across the country as people deal with the COVID-19 outbreak. These virtual educational programs will help parents and kids learn about football, history of the game and the hall of fame itself.
While school is out, students and people of all ages can access video programs that educate on careers in the NFL, the Pro Football Hall of Fame mission, vision and values, as well as the story of pro football, African-American Trailblazers and the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame is currently closed due to the coronavirus outbreak until at least March 27.
