Water safety is important for students to understand, especially younger ones who may not have received swim lessons yet. This READY-TO-USE LESSON (no prep) lesson is designed to teach these concepts in a fun and entertaining way that they will be able to remember. It includes 5 videos that range from 1 minute to 9 minutes in length. It also includes a quiz at the end. This lesson could EASILY be broken into at least 2 parts.
Concepts covered include:
• Swimming with a buddy
• Use of life jackets
• Safe diving
• Reach and throw; don’t go
• Swim only with adult permission
• Swim when supervised
• Other important water safety rules
I have found that videos are very effective in helping students to create an emotional link to the abstract concepts that character education involves. Coupled with discussions in which you can assist students to make the connection, it is an easy and effective way to teach these difficult concepts and assist students to internalize them into their own personalities.
This presentation includes 13 slides which have transitions, clip art, and animations to help to hold your students' interest. I have embedded background music that I have found helpful to hold student interest. It is easily personalized and customized and includes a master slide that you can copy and paste into the location where additional information is desired.
You may want to rearrange the slides to make this presentation fit your needs. I have them arranged the way that makes sense for my students, but that may not be the best way for you.
