The storybook introduces students to electrical and gas safety messages. Download the PDF and make copies of the story for your class. It is also available in Spanish on the “Family Resources” page of this site.
To start the lesson, ask students:
Explain to students that you're going to read a story so they can learn some things they can do to be safe. Distribute the mini storybooks so students can follow along as you read to the class. After reading, review what Lucy and Mateo learned. Ask students:
When done, send the storybooks home for kids to read with their parents.
We also encourage you to make copies of the “Family Energy Safety Tips” found on the “Family Resources” page of this site and send the page home with students. The page includes gas and electrical safety tips that could help keep families safe.
