Fire Safety Lap Book

by | Sep 28, 2009 | Lap Books, Nature, Wildfire | 13 comments

This past week the girls worked on a Fire Safety Lap Book. We started the week with a Forest Fire Field Trip and then read lots of books on the topic before starting our lap book.

Books about Fires and Firefighters:

For the cover of the Lap Book I just printed out the words Fire Safety — quick and easy! 😉

It was a simple Lap Book, but very effective. We discussed what to do when a fire starts in our home, escape routes and plans, meeting spot, our home address and phone number, fire alarms, what to do when on fire, how to treat burns, and more. Here is a picture of the inside of Twinkle Toes’ lap book:

Here are links to the mini books we used from Homeschool Helper:

Smoke Detectors Circle Fan Fold – When should you change batteries and where should they be located?
Four Steps to Fire Safety – Write and illustrate the four steps to fire safety.
Two Ways Out Envelope – Show the two ways out of each room in your house.
Firemen Matchbook Fold – Name some tools that firemen use.
Escape Route Center Fold – Draw your family’s escape route.
Meeting Spot Triangle Petal Fold – Choose your family’s outside meeting spot.
Getting Out Flap Fold – Answer the questions about getting out safely.
Emergency Layered Book – Fill in information you need to know in an emergency.
Stop, Drop and Roll Indexed Tabs – Illustrate how to stop, drop and roll.
How to Treat Burns Envelope Fold – Describe how to treat minor burns.

    Jessica…I need your email again. The baby played with the keyboard and deleted some emails I'd saved. But I need to tell you something 🙂

    Thank you for posting the Fire Safety lapbook. We're getting ready for Fire Prevention Week this week & I wasn't sure how to bring it altogether. Nicely done!

    I'm sorry, Laura. It's been so many years since we did this project… I don't think I took pictures of the inside of each mini-book.

    What a great idea, thanks so much for sharing! I'm hoping to do this on Monday with the kids…do you happen to have saved copies of the resources you could email over (as the links don't work.)

    Thank you in advance!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
