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)
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.
