Fire Prevention Week
Reading/Social Studies Fire Prevention Week is October 5-11. After discussing fire safety with your students, read aloud a book such as Firefighters to the Rescue by Kersten Hamilton (Viking, 2005). Create a mural about rescue workers, using different art mediums and your students' descriptive words.
