This unit contains the words and clipart needed to create a graphic organizer to generate ideas or share what students already know about the tools firefighters need to stay safe. It can be used to brainstorm the tools firefighters need. Clipart and words are included for tools such as a hose, a helmet, bunker pants, extinguisher, etc. There are also words included for the outside of the circle which tell how students know what they know. For example: family, friends, self, books, etc.
This map can be used with a lesson on heat or fire safety. It can follow lessons on heat and how heat changes things. It can be a connection between the way scientists use tools and procedures to stay safe and the way firefighters use tools and procedures to stay safe. You can also brainstorm a list or have students write about procedures for fire safety.
