When I was a first grade classroom teacher, I was always looking for  ways to integrate my lesson plans.  Each month on Sparky's Parents & Educators website there is a different "Learning Link".  These are incredible activities and wonderful ways to integrate fire safety education into other core subjects in the classrooms. 

The "Learning Link" this month is "measuring up". This fire-safety themed, printable encourages kids to become familiar with units of measurement and practice identifying given measurements.

The second page challenges students to measure the “kid-free zone”  around a space heater, stove, or fireplace. By making this  a hands-on  activity you will help students visualize, and remember, the "kid-free  zone" in their everyday lives.

Fire departments in the United States and Canada that are introducing or maintaining a fire and life safety program or campaign can have their efforts supported by the Rolf H. Jensen Memorial Public Education Grant.
