Teaching Preschoolers About Fire Safety
On our site, you can find several suggested fire safety activities on our free fire safety theme planning page, as well as printable fire safety resources to add to your learning centers and to compliment your fire safety lessons!
There are several preschool appropriate books about fire safety, as well as educational videos on youtube to assist you in teaching about fire safety such as this Fire Station Tour from Blippi, or the Sparky's ABC's of Safety.
