Here are some great books for your unit!
After reading a book about fire safety, have the students brainstorm a list of rules. Have students create a matchbook shaped book. On the inside, students can write fire safety rules on paper matchsticks. Glue the matchsticks inside and fold construction paper to look like a matchbook.
The Fire Station by Robert Munsch is a funny story about two kids who go for a ride on a fire truck. This entertaining tale helps remind students that you should only contact firemen or police in an emergency. It is a great book to use as a book treasure book. Book treasure ideas include small bells or a small piece of sponge.
