Topic Mini-Research Real World Activity
You have been chosen to be a firefighter for a day! You are at the fire station and OH NO! DING DING DING DING there is a fire! You must put on your fire gear before you get in the fire truck. Draw and label a picture of what gear you will need to put on to fight the fire. Make sure you don't forget anything because firefighters need all of their gear so they will not get burned! Go to Elmo's Fire Safety website if you need some help remembering what you need to wear. Next, draw a picture of you fighting the fire with all your gear on! If you can remember what gear you should wear, you can become a Junior Firefighter!
