Fire Prevention Week is coming soon {October 9-15, 2016}, it’s a great time to bring some of this fun and free learning into your homeschool or classroom!

The Sparky School House site for teachers is filled with resources: printables, videos, apps, lesson plans and more!

One of the awesome new resources is this video Firefighting’s Weird History and Fascinating Future. We watched the video and all learned some interesting facts! Ladybug snuggled on my lap as we watched and giggled at some of the funny parts. We oooohed and ahhed as they shared the parts about where fire fighting might be going in the future!  She especially liked the robots and droids!

 

Want to take it beyond just watching the video?  They provide free lesson plans! Not just for this video, but for all of their videos and much more! There are tabs that list the different types of lessons available, click on “Lessons for Videos” to find these!

I know many of my readers have younger kids, I went looking around for some printables that you might enjoy using with your kids to teach fire safety. These were just a couple of my favorites.

Escape Plan  Hot or Not

 

I also found some fun ideas, like drawing a Dalmatian or creating an Origami dog! Find these printables and more here in the Digital Backpack section!

I hope these free resources from Sparky School House help you bring some fun and learning into your home or classroom for Fire Prevention Week!
