If you’re like me, you sometimes forget about the importance of fire prevention education.
DON’T be like me.
That’s why I’m writing this blog post.
To remind you to teach your children and students about fire prevention safety now!
Because kids need tons of reminders.
Which we don’t do enough.
And when you’re reading, here’s the good news –I have great, high-quality resources to share that will make it easy for both parents and teachers to teach kids about fire prevention safety!
Since October is Fire Prevention Month and Fire Prevention Week 2019 is October 6 – 12, it’s a great time for a refresh of your fire prevention knowledge. (I actually just bought 4 more smoke detectors for my house just last week.)
Kids need to learn both about fire prevention as well as what to do in case of a fire.
Here’s How to Teach Kids Fire Prevention Safety Right Now
Use the resources from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) as your go-to source for Fire Prevention Week education. They offer videos, apps, and resources for parents and teachers for preschool through elementary school-aged kids.
Where to Start
3. Sparky Apps
This is a trivia game that tells you fire trivia then asks you questions in different categories including fire safety, math, and science.
The fun learning games in this app are perfect for preschool age students and children.
Just like the web-based game with games that unlock as you progress, kids play carnival games while learning about fire safety.
