  1. Fire Safety Thematic Handout Northeast Wisconsin Technical College Chelsy DeLaney

  2. Rational • While working at Head Start, I observed children that were frightened by the fire drills, I believe this was due to not being informed and educated on what a fire drill is and why we have them. • I have also observed many young children who are fascinated with firemen, police officers, and others with heroic careers. • I find that many young children, when asked, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” reply with, “a fireman.” • Many young children are not taught about fire safety at home, and do not know the proper ways to react during a fire. Therefore I think the topic of fire safety is age Appropriate and will be beneficial and interesting to most young children.

  3. Fire Safety Introduction • I will introduce the topic of fire safety with a book called Fire! Fire! By: Gail Gibbons. • This book is chosen because it is age appropriate, for children ages 4+. • I would sit down with my pre-school class and talk with them about what they know about fires, and what they think my book may be about. I will then explain to my class that this week we will be talking about fires, firemen, and how to be safe in the event of a fire; and continue with the reading of Fire! Fire! • I would use this thematic handout during fire safety week, October 9th-October 13th, 2012. Each year the dates may differ.

  9. Activity Description • Firefighter Hat Project- Students will create firefighter hats out of paper plates. The students will paint a paper plate red, cut the centers of the plate out half way around, and fold the part that was cut up to make the front of the hat, the students will then be given a firefighter badge sticker to put on the front. (Similar to the image) • Fire Counting Cards- To help students learn to count and recognize numbers the fire counting game is great, students will each be given up to 10 red “fire balls” and one fire cut out, along with 10 number cards, numbers 1-10. Students can practice this at home with parents, in small groups, or even as a class.
