This Safety at School Unit Plan meets the expectations of the grade 1 and 2 Ontario Health curriculum (2019) and explores safe practices in common areas of the school, including the classroom, the hallway, the gym, and the playground. The Unit Plan includes 6 days of lesson plans that each outline an essential question, key vocabulary, materials needed, a 3-part lesson (introduction, development, application), and assessment suggestions. Students will have fun with the Picture Search activities which use pictures of real locations in a school with added original clipart of unsafe behaviours, such as sharing food or holding scissors the wrong way.
