Every year students have the opportunity to create a poster design with the theme of Fire Prevention. This is an annual initiative that I participate in with our town fire marshal, Mr. Tom Galliford.
Fourth grade participates as an option, typically outside of the art room. Fifth graders do the contest as a class assignment in Art. So, if you notice your children talking more about Fire safety, dangers, preventative measures, creating a meeting place, practicing a fire drill... My unit on Fire prevention may be why :)
The packet that students may use for information and inspiration is located here.
The informative Fire Prevention videos that the students have seen in Art class are also located here; Video 1 and Video 2.
Please support our school initiative in teaching our children how to be safe in the event of a fire related emergency. Thank you!!
I have been teaching art at Ralph M.T. Johnson School since 2001. I hope to encourage my students to use their creative experiences and become innovative explorers.
