Being married to a firefighter myself, I am very aware of how important teaching these lessons is to our students and our own children. When children are aware of their surroundings and they are taught important safety lessons, it gives them confidence to know just what to do in the event of an emergency.
This lap book lesson starts with general safety tips on fire safety. It includes a mini poster to help you have a discussion with your students.
Students will use these images on the left with space for writing underneath to identify some fire safety tips as well as identify a possible meeting place or an actual meeting place if this has been discussed at home. The other side of the lap book (shown here on the right) includes tools firefighters use and a picture of a firetruck that students can color.
Your students will learn to recognize places in their home. They will then develop a drawing of the inside of their home with 2 possible escape routes.
Students can color a firefighter (male or female) and glue it onto the back of the folder or it can be copied onto thicker paper and used as a "popup" on the top.
These lap books not only make for a great and fun learning experience, they are also great for bulletin board displays, as a table display and/or for Meet the Teacher Night.
