Book Discussion - You should discuss the concepts of the books with the children. You can discuss how to stay safe in a fire, ask them what they do if their playmate showed them a real gun, and what they would do if a stranger called their name asking them to go for a ride. It will help to ensure they know the correct answer for each topic so they know how to stay safe.
No, I Won't Go! - Using index cards, make up at least ten scenarios that would be deemed unsafe for the children when it comes to encountering a stranger or being abducted. When you talk to them about the scenario, have them all say in unison "No, I Won't Go!" This game will reiterate the fact that they must think on their feet and use them to run as well. They must also know this is a good time to go tell another adult what is going on. This game will be a fun way for them to learn a lifesaving skill.
Stop, Drop, and Roll - This game is one that is interactive as well. The students will all stand while practicing this easy technique that could lessen a fire injury to their bodies. It is also a good time to explain to them to stay low and crawl when they see smoke. Inform them, "If the smoke is high, you crawl low." This statement will save them from inhaling some of the smoke.
Gun Safety Game - Show the children pictures of different types of guns including those they play with and those that are real. Whenever you show the children a picture of a gun ask them if it is real or for play. Ask them what would they do if it was real. Ask them what would they do if their playmate wanted to play with the gun. Ensure that the children know what is the safest practice should they be exposed to a real gun.
