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.
