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.

OBJECTIVE
To teach fire safety through matching and recognition. 

MATERIALS
Classroom Poster, Student Worksheet 1 , whiteboard or chart paper, markers, pencils

DIRECTIONS
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.
