This could be a good time to talk about media literacy--you could talk about how to evaluate sources and recognizing fallacies, and even show some examples and evaluate what makes them good or bad. (Potentially without even calling out specific news sources, but just by pulling quotes or examples.) It doesn't necessarily have to be political, but you can show why "Facebook news" can be unreliable and that there are better sources.

I second the voting information. Even middle schoolers can be engaged in this topic. I'm working on my own "intro" item for fall, and voting and student rights seem to consistently pop up in this new COVID-19 environment.
