I truly think that teaching some simple fire safety rules is one of the most important life skills that we can share with our students.
With that in mind, I designed this quick, easy and fun fire truck “slider” craftivity, which goes over some of the most important ones.
So that you can quickly and easily make a sample to share, I’ve included templates in full color.
There are also 2 black and white “slider” options for your kiddos.
One without words for little ones, the other with a few words for students who are learning to read.
Children color the graphics, cut and glue their slider together, then slip it through the pre-cut slits on their fire truck.
Trucks can be run off on white paper so that children can color them, or to expedite things, run off on red and yellow construction paper and have students add some accent colors with crayons.
There’s also a set of 5 colorful posters to help explain the rules, which can later be used for a bulletin board or wall display.
I’ve also included a letter home to parents, should you want to have your students make and share their fire escape plan. (Why teach rules, when there’s no follow through at home?)
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you an “ed-venture”-filled and very happy Fire Safety Month.
