Rabbits in the Hole
Submitted by BarbaraTell your children this story about the importance of listening to their teachers in an emergency such as a fire, storm or any other time. The Story goes like this:
In the forest there were little rabbits that went to a little rabbit school. One day the teacher rabbit told the little rabbits about woodcutters who came and cut down the forest trees. "When the trees fall down it is not safe for the little rabbits," she said, "so they need to hide under the surrounding rocks". If you ever hear someone yell the special words, "rabbits in the hole," hop as fast as you can into your hole under the rocks where it's safe. The little bunnies listened to their teacher rabbit and even practiced going into their holes under the rock. Then one day, the woodcutters came into the forest and started cutting down the trees. The teacher rabbit yelled out "rabbits in the hole" and all the little bunnies hopped into their holes under the rocks, where it was safe. They did such a fantastic job, that not a single little rabbit got hurt

Submitted by LoriHave your children draw the route they would take to get out of their house in case of emergency. Challenge them to come up with several different routes.
Catch the Fire GameYou need enough blankets or towels for half your class and a large area to run in. First, have the girls go to one end of the area and the boys to the opposite of the girls. Place the blankets or towels in the middle. Explain to the children that some people don't know what to do if they catch on fire, so you can help them. Have one group (girls or the boys) pretend they are on fire and run around the area yelling "I'm on fire". The other group grabs a blanket or towel and "hugs" a child "on fire". After everyone's fire is out, switch groups. If the boys were on fire, let the girls catch fire. Great way to teach fire safety!
