Last week we attended a field trip to the local fire department with our local homeschool group. The kids had a blast!
We split up into four rotations. The first rotation took us in this room where the kids drew a floorplan of their house, chose a "meeting spot" outside in case of a fire, and drew their escape plan. I honestly never thought of having them do this and it was eye opening to see how far the kids would have to go to a door they can open. Next step is to get rope ladders! Although I do admit telling my 2 year old to go to the mailbox in case of a fire sounded rather scary. Ya know, the get saved from the fire but hit by the car kind. ;)
Of course when they asked for volunteers to demonstrate "stop, drop, cover, and roll" J was all over it. Love her!
