Concordia University and Fire Safety and Prevention Curriculum

The School of Education at Concordia University Wisconsin in conjunction with the Alliance for Fire Safety and the American Red Cross invite you to join us in integrating fire safety curriculum into your Math, Social Studies, Science and English Language Arts curriculums.  We believe that it is very important that all teachers are given information about fire safety to teach their students.  Students are generally the source of fire safety information in their own home and help prevent many fires every year. We want to encourage all current and future teachers to incorporate fire safety into their curriculum. 

Concordia University Wisconsin has worked closely with the Alliance for Fire Safety in looking for curriculums which can match up with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Standards.  The American Red Cross curriculum provides lessons for children from Kindergarten through the eighth grade.  The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction standards for the core content areas have been aligned with each of the lessons. 

Fire fighters and fire inspectors as they present fire prevention information to schools can also use these lesson plans and encourage teachers to also use the lesson plans throughout the academic year.  Children, and adults, learn best when information is repeated and given in a variety of settings (various content areas throughout the school day and school year). 

Downloadable versions of the lesson plans and activities can be found at:

www.redcross.org/disaster/masters

Once you are at the Red Cross website, you will see a phrase:  “Lessons for educators” 

Click on this phrase and the lessons will come up.   You then decide which grade levels you want and  click on that grade level. 

The alignment  to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Standards can be found at:    www.cuw.edu      At that website,  click on “Academics”   then click on “Academic Programs”,  then click on “Elementary Education”  Then click on “Current Students”  then click on “Fire Safety”.  A lot of scrolling and clicking but the standards are aligned with the lesson plans for English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and Math.  So, well worth the clicks and scrolls.
