Fire Safety

This week we have talked about Fire Safety. Here are some pictures and highlights of our week!First we started by reading some books about firemen and what they do to keep us safe. Here Chase is coloring his fireman hat. Then the children glued their hats on a white circle and then added their eyes, nose and mouth. I had the children tell me one way the Fireman keeps them safe and I wrote it on the back of their firemen.

We also talked about "Stop, Drop, & Roll" and learned a song to help the children remember what to do if their clothes catch on fire. This was a scary concept for some of the children. We also did an experiment with a candle to show what fire needs to burn.

Here the children are showing their fire trucks they made.

Thursday the children were visited by Lt. Knight from the LaGrange Fire Dept. He reviewed a little about fire safety with the children and brought them these cool hats.

Then we stepped outside where there was a real fire truck! The children enjoyed learning all about the different equipment the fire truck has on it that keeps us safe. Some children were very nervous about everything but I think they really enjoyed it!

Here is Kylie taking the truck for a drive:)

And Patrick is ready to roll! Later I asked Patrick what he thought about getting to "drive" the fire truck... he replied "but it didn't move":)

Thanks to the firemen who keep us safe!!
