Connect the dots and build brain power with Sparky!

Blog Post created by vholub Employee on Mar 22, 2019


As the birthday celebration of Sparky® winds down, NFPA would like to call your attention to another helpful resource that educators, parents, and the fire service can use to engage younger generations.


The “Connect the Dots” print-out is just one of several entertaining tools that we highlighted this week in our birthday blog series. The primary focus of this particular piece is to build brain power and challenge kids in mathematics. Children are encouraged to complete math problems so that they can connect the dots and reveal an important life-saving device.


There are two different activity sheets – one that is geared to younger children with less complicated addition and subtraction problems, and a second for older students with more challenging calculations.


As Sparky checks off year 68 and his festivities wrap up, NFPA encourages educators to keep sharing brain-building tips and tools with children all year long. Visit Sparky.org for easy-to-use resources and key safety messages.
