As a child I loved getting the Scholastic magazine in school. All the kids looked forward to seeing what was in it every month. Again this Fire Prevention Week, NFPA has teamed up with Scholastic to create comprehensive fire-safety materials for preschoolers through grade 5. Lesson plans, worksheets, a great poster and take-home activities specifically created for kids.
In the classic story of Alice in Wonderland, Alice falls into a strange world and must find her way home. This program, "Have Two Ways Out," brings together Sparky the Fire Dog and Alice into Wonderland where they need to find two ways out. Students learn the importance of having a home fire escape plan which includes two ways out of every room. NFPA is excited to offer this program on the Fire Prevention Week website (in English and Spanish) for teachers, parents and educators to download free of charge. The great thing about the materials is you can do some of them or all of them. Take a look and let us know what you think.
