Help children learn how to use the principle of observe and interact to develop critical skills for personal safety, self-regulation, and situational awareness.
This lesson includes 2 introduction, 18 main activity, and 4 conclusion options that are developmentally tailored to meet the needs of children from birth through the upper primary years. PLUS, a bonus lesson plan (one of my most popular) to help children learn how to ask higher-order, critical thinking questions!
Many of these ideas are great to share with parents as activities they can do at home (e.g. share in a monthly newsletter or at a parent-teacher conference to integrate parents into the learning process).
(Note: As a classroom teacher, you do NOT need to purchase multiple licenses to distribute to your parents. I only ask that each teacher make the purchase once.)
This one lesson is formatted as choice boards that allow you and the child to mix and match to find the best way to learn about this topic.
