Invite your students to create posters illustrating safety precautions as serious business!
Ask students to work in small groups to brainstorm safety rules everyone needs to follow: at home, at school, in very hot or cold weather, in case of fire, or while playing outside, eating, riding in cars, or interacting with animals. Instruct each group to select one safety rule that the group identifies as very important to their safety.
Provide each group with a selection of Crayola® Washable Markers. Groups will divide a piece of poster board or large construction paper in half. On one half, students are to create a poster image of a real or imaginary creature who has not followed their selected rule or is thinking about breaking it. Encourage each group to demonstrate in their images what is likely to happen when safety rules are not followed.
Challenge the group to write safety reminders in the other half of their posters. Encourage the checking of spelling and appropriate use of grammar and punctuation.
Provide an opportunity for each group to share their safety issue and artwork with classmates, as well as time for audience members to question the content of the presentation.
Display in a safety gallery as a reminder to other children.
