It seems to be a fungus problem. Use wettable sulfur, neem oil, garlic oil, lavender oil, to control the fungus. It is safe to remove infected growth, and will grow back. It is recommended to treat the area before consuming. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/cabbage/cruciferous-leaf-spot.htm

It is a bit late, but you can still get a decent enough harvest for them to get the feel of the project. I could also recommend garlic! Most are very cold tolerant, and can be planted in September and October for a good harvest before the summer. Snow and Snap peas are also a fun, and easy project for cool weather.
