Profession of Firefighters
PYP Grade 1 covered all the lines of inquiry for the Transportation Unit and summarized it by learning about service vehicles and fire safety: They now know the basic fire safety rules, they have a fire safety plan and know how to stop, drop and roll. Students learned about the crucial and heroic profession of firefighters and were so excited to visit the fire station museum on the 22nd of March, meet real fire fighters and explore the fire truck.
Before going on this trip, Grade 1 students each prepared a thank you letter and a drawing for the firefighters. After visiting the Museum, they met the fire fighters and gave them their drawings. The children said thank you for everything the firefighters do to keep us safe. It was a great way of showing gratitude and an amazing experience for both the students and the fire fighters.
