A technical/creative writing activity in connection with Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
Students really enjoy this assignment. It is making a fire escape route map. It is creative, yet also requires technical drawing. It can be modified to suit students gr. 4-12.
It based on the subject of fire, but is not directly related to the novel. It can be done at any point in the story.
Also a great Fire Prevention Week activity (Oct. 7-13), which commemorates the great Chicago fire of 1871. (www.nfpa.org)
