The Minnesota Literacy Council created this curriculum with funding from ECHO (Emergency, Community, Health, and Outreach) as funded by the MN Department of Public Safety and the MN State Fire Marshal. The goal of the curriculum is to educate our communities on how to prevent fires started by youth, and increasing fire safety. We invite you to adapt it for your own classrooms.
This is a 1-week unit where students will become familiar with fire prevention; in particular, they will discuss how to prevent children from playing with fire. Students will therefore discuss the uses and misuses of fire, how to prevent house fires, the importance of smoke detectors and fire escape plans, and how to treat burns.
