From Campaign 2011: Lesson 1: Fairy-Tale Match
Have students review the steps of a fire escape plan, and match fairy-tale characters to their fire safety activity.
To teach fire safety through matching and recognition.
1. Hang the Classroom Poster in an easy-to-see location. Invite students to call out the names of any fairy-tale characters they recognize. Some of the characters in the poster are practicing fire-safety.
2. It is important to have a home fire-escape plan and to practice it so that everyone knows what to do if a fire occurs. Write the steps of a fire-escape plan on the board or chart paper:
• A grown-up should test smoke alarms at least once a month.
• Know two ways out of every room.
• Pick an Outside Meeting Place.
• If the smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside.
• Go to your Outside Meeting Place and stay there.
3. Distribute copies of Student Worksheet 1. Ask students to work in pairs to match the fairy-tale character to his or her fire-safety activity in the poster.
