DIRECTIONS

BACKGROUND DISCUSSION:

Before class, photocopy the mini-storybook pages for each student. Have students fold and staple to create simple 8-page mini-books.

Read the mini-storybook and discuss the four fire-safety tips aloud. Invite students to color the pictures in the storybook.

USING THE STUDENT PRINTABLES:

Distribute copies of Student Printable 1: Drawing Template (PDF). Separate students into four groups and assign each group to illustrate one fire-safety tip.

Have student groups talk about their pictures. Use Student Printable 2: Fire-Safety Tips (PDF) and have students vote for the fire-safety tip that they think is the most important. (Note: students may not vote for the tip that they illustrated)

WRAP-UP:

Distribute the Family Checklists. Ask students to bring this sheet home to their families. For the next three days, reinforce fire-safety tips with students.
