This collection, provided by the National Fire Protection Association is amazing. Here you will find fire prevention facts, products to help families stay safe, special materials for parents (and teachers, too), an online quiz for both students and families, and more! At the time of this review, the message for the year was "Protecting Your Families and Loved Ones From Fire." The approach, at the time of this review, is multimedia; in addition to the quiz, there are audio public service announcements, a blog, an upcoming webinar, and safety videos. For younger children, the familiar Sparky the Dog offers fun activities. Accompanying safety tip sheets benefit everyone, and a focus on high-risk populations assures you that everyone will have a fighting chance against fire.

In the Classroom

Try pair teaching after introducing the important facts available on this page. Have the first of a pair give the other student the facts and then have the second add to what the first has missed. Have your class make their own posters using this year's campaign logo. Have students create online posters on paper or do it together as a class using a tool such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here) or PicLits (reviewed here). Have your class create check sheets they can take home and do their own domestic assessment with. Ask if they know any members of the population that might be higher at risk for fires, and see if they can think of ways to make contact and help this group.

This simple website presents young students with information on what to do in the event of an emergency - call 911. The best aspect of the site is that there is an interactive telephone that allows students to practice calling 911. For example, they show a house with fire coming out of the window and students need to determine when to call 911. The website times the response time of the phone call. This offers excellent practice for emergency situations, without ACTUALLY dialing 911 on a real phone. This site requires Shockwave. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): fire (24), fire prevention (9)

In the Classroom

Share the text of this website on an interactive whiteboard or projector during fire prevention week or while studying a unit on safety. Have students work on individual computers or a center to practice calling 911. Special ed teachers working with severely challenged students will find this safety lesson valuable--perhaps a real lifesaver!

Though not designed specifically for students, this site, containing a wealth of information on ways to minimize dangers to people from forest fires, includes many examples of how man and his environment can be at odds with one another. In addition to the scientific issues involved in fire control and prevention, this site would contribute to a discussion on ecosystems and encroachment into wilderness areas.

tag(s): fire (24), fire prevention (9)

In the Classroom

As your students study about safety or environmental issues, include this site as a resource. Ask students to create a fire pro and con list as they discuss the more obvious safety issues of fire and the balancing role that fire can play in renewing habitats and nature's cycles. Use a graphic organizer tool such as bubbl.us (reviewed here) to map out the many impacts that wildland fires can have.
