|Miss A testing if just 'a little bit' of breath (air) can put the flame out? Miss M is watching on very intently :]|
|Mr. H is going to try to smother his flame....|
|IT WORKED! Look at that face...he is so excited!|
|Miss P and Mr. J having fun mixing the smoke around in the air!|
We discussed what to do if there is a fire in our home or at school. All the children were quick to learn that you STOP, DROP and CRAWL to the nearest exit. We talked about how smoke rises and being low to the ground will help us to not breathe it in. We are careful to feel the door in front of us...if it's too hot we DON'T open it and start calling for help. If we are on fire we stop, drop and ROLL. We continued to discuss what to do in case of a fire emergency. We read the Bearenstein Bears book "A visit to the Firehouse." I was amazed at how well the children listened and focused. They were very serious about our fire lesson and I was so proud of them!
