Keep Your Family Safe From Fire

Grades 1-2 Lessons on Fire Safety

In the classic story Alice in Wonderland, the character Alice enters a strange and mysterious world and must find her way home. This program, "Have Two Ways Out," brings together Sparky the Fire Dog® and Alice in a fantasy wonderland where, no matter where they are, they need to have two ways out in case of a fire emergency. In real life, it's important that your students always have two ways out of every room in their homes in case of fire.

Use the lessons and activities from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Scholastic to both teach essential fire-safety information and also build skills aligned with English Language Arts Common Core State Standards. Then send home the family pages to continue the learning at home. We hope you enjoy these materials!
