From Campaign 2008, Lesson 3: Role-Play Fire Safety
Reinforce what to do in case of fire with these fun role-playing activities.
Goal: Students will practice what to do in case of fire.
Family Printable (PDF), space for a role playing activity
Explain that it is important to have an Escape Plan and practice it so that everyone knows what to do if a fire occurs.
Discuss and demonstrate each of the following fire-safety behaviors:
* Get low and go under the smoke to the nearest way out.
* Don't open any doors until you check the door to make sure it is not hot.
* Get out of the home and stay out.
* Meet your family at your Outside Meeting Place.
Invite students to role-play each of the fire-safety behaviors one-by-one.
USING THE FAMILY PRINTABLE:
Distribute copies of the Family Printable (PDF) to each student. (Crossword puzzle answers: Across: 1. heaters, 4. plan, 5.smoke; Down: 1. hot, 2. candles, 3. stay).
Ask students to conduct a Family Fire Drill at home. Students should go to sparky.org to make their fire drill count in The Great American Fire Drill.
Ask the teachers of younger students if your students can help conduct this fire-safety role-playing activity in their classrooms!
