fire-safety, fire-prevention, burn-prevention
Fire prevention week takes place in October. This resource will help you teach young children an important concept about fire and burn prevention. Use this resource during fire prevention week or anytime you are completing a safety unit.
There are several activities included in this file. There is a bingo game, a “Firefighter-Rescue” game, a letter discrimination activity for the letter "Ff"“, Listen to the Teacher” coloring activities, and more. The key objective in most of the activities is for students to become aware of common household items that are dangerous when not used properly. (Due to their ability to cause a fire or to injure through burns.)
These activities are designed for young children that are in pre-k and kindergarten classrooms.
"Hot Things in the House" bingo game
There are 9 unique bingo cards included. These can be printed on colored card-stock for lasting use. They can also be printed on regular copy paper and used as a consumable. Each card uses the same nine household objects. There are bingo calling cards and bingo cue cards included. The bingo cue cards provide a brief description of each of the 9 household items. The cue cards can be used in place of the calling cards to enrich the language experience while the game is in play.
"Listen to the Teacher" listening activity
Each child will need 9 crayons and a copy of the activity sheet. The teacher names one of the household items which were used in the bingo game. The children are directed to color the item in with a specified color. When the activity is completed, the child's sheet will have 9 household items colored in . . . . each with a different color. The colors needed are: red, yellow, blue, green, orange, purple, black, pink, and brown.
"Firefighter Rescue" game board activity
Players must stay on the path to safely bring the puppy to its mother. Two children are needed to play the game. Children take turns withdrawing cards (provided). They move their game markers according to the number dictated on the card that is withdrawn. Small action figures can be used as game markers or the firefighter game markers included in this file can be used.
