Teach Fire Safety for Free
The US Fire Administration has a fantastic website full of free resources to download or receive via mail. For the younger crew there is a Sesame Street fire safety book, and the older homeschoolers will enjoy "Marty and Jett's" fire safety activity book. There is a wonderful and comprehensive preschool curriculum featuring Sesame Street characters for Pre-K students. This fire safety kit includes sing along tapes, coloring books and a poster. Check out the USFA website for ordering details. Remember, it is all free of charge.
Scholastic offers several online games for all elementary grades for free. Children will join Sparky the Firedog for an online hunt for hazards in your home and an escape plan activity. There are also reproducibles, lesson ideas and resources for teaching fire safety and prevention.
Don't forget to do a few at home practice fire drills. Enlist your child to make a list of possible fire hazards, and plan a time monthly to check that your home has smoke detectors that are working. Through these free ideas and resources you can teach your homeschooler about fire prevention and keep everyone in the family safe.
