MATERIALS
Worksheet 3, crayons, Family Reproducible, Family Take-Home pages

DIRECTIONS

1. Hold a class discussion about outside meeting places. Tell students that every family should choose their own outside meeting place so everyone knows where to go if there is a fire. Tell students that a good meeting place is large, away from your home, and always in the same place—like a tree or a mailbox. Ask: Is a car a good meeting place? (No.) Why not? (A car is not always in the same place.) If students hear the smoke alarm go beep, beep, beep, they should go to the outside meeting place and wait for their families. Ask: What should you do if you are the first person to get to your outside meeting place? (Stay there.) Should you go back inside your home? (No.)

2. Distribute copies of Worksheet 3. Discuss each of the drawings. Have students circle the images that are good meeting places (tree, mailbox, streetlight) and place an X over the images that are not good meeting places (car, wagon).

3. Send home the worksheet along with the Family Reproducible and Family Take-Home pages. Encourage children to choose an outside meeting place with their families and practice a family fire drill.
