Fire Safety: What's the Plan?

Scholars complete a survey in preparation for a lesson all about fire safety. Small groups begin a KWL chart then discuss their responses with their peers. The class takes part in a Think, Pair, Share to gather additional information needed for a class safety plan. Small groups build their plan for the classroom then independently, create a plan for their home. Pupils revisit the KWL chart to complete its final section.

Instructional Ideas
  • Create a project rubric then share it with the class to guide their plan while they work 
  • Set Fire Safety Vocabulary sheets to the side, direct early finishers to begin working on it after they complete the KWL chart 
  • If you live in a fire-prone area, conduct the lesson before the most active season
Classroom Considerations
  • The survey requires preparation
  • Pupils' display finished safety plans on poster board or tri-fold presentation boards 
  • The lesson incorporates cooperative learning strategies
  • Stresses the importance of being prepared
  • Includes a home component
  • Does not come with a project rubric
