I think one of the most important things that I teach my Y5s is fire safety
, so I'm pricing this packet at over 40% off.
With all of our discussions about not playing with matches, houses burning down, and people getting hurt, I discovered that my students were coming away with the idea that fire was bad
Simply ask for a thumbs up or down whether your kiddos think fire is good or bad; and I think you’ll find like I did, that most, if not all of your students will give you a thumbs down, emphatically believing that fire is bad!
Since fire is truly beneficial
and a necessary
part of everyday life, I feel there’s a need to explain
this to young children.
It’s important that they learn to respect fire without fearing
Children need to understand the difference
between good fires and bad fires, as well as fire’s beneficial
With these things in mind, I created this “Good Fire-Bad Fire” packet and am discounting the price.
These quick, easy & fun
activities will help children develop a healthy understanding
of fire, so they are able to identify fire as a necessary
part of their lives and an essential tool
The packet includes:
* 65 real photographs
of fires which can be categorized
by children as good or bad.
Choose a dozen or so and use them for . . .
, where students give you a thumbs up or down,
* an independent center
where children sort
the photographs into the 2
“good/bad fire” file folders
*a puzzle center (Cut the photographs in half
or in quarters
* writing prompts
(There are 4 graphic organizers
, plus 6
“complete the prompt” worksheets
* a bulletin board
displaying the pictures under the “good fire/bad fire” header cards
* I’ve also included a “Flip the Flame” craftivity
, where students color, cut and glue the “happy” good flame and the “angry” bad flame back-to-back on a Popsicle stick.
You show a photograph asking “Is this a good or bad fire?” Children flip their flame and hold up their answer.
* The packet also includes a graphing
activity, several other worksheets, posters
and a bookmark
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping this packet is a simple and interesting way for your students to realize that fires are also a very good thing!
