Stranger Danger Material
Recently in Springfield, Missouri a horrific crime was committed against a ten year old girl Hailey Owens. I created this free Stranger Danger material in her memory. In this activity there is a board game provided where each student has the change to race home to win. Depending on the color they land on will determine if they do one of the following:
a. Tell you if the scenario read aloud is a Safe Idea or a Stranger Danger situation. Cards are also provided to hold up for the answer.
b. Explain what they would do in a given situation.
c. Sort a given character into the stranger, familiar person, or friend/family section.
With this game all you will need to provide are token pieces for each player and a set of dice. I encourage all of you to download, make copies and share. Talk about methods to ward off strangers or to help identify if the person is a stranger such as having a buddy system or creating a family password.
This activity provides opportunity for several language goals to be addressed such as: reasoning, problem solving, sentence formulation, pragmatic language skills, etc.
