Addie the Alien - First Aid - Lesson Plans

Addie the Alien - First Aid - Lesson Plans

The lessons in the Addie First Aid Awareness series can be taught as a unit of work over a period of six to eight lessons starting with the first section: ‘How 2 Understand Safety Awareness’ (Lessons 1 & 2); progressing to How 2 Saves Lives (Lessons 1, 2 & 3) and finishing with How 2 Take Emergency Action (Lessons 1 & 2). Schools looking for progression through the primary education years, these are the recommendations How 2 Understand Safety Awareness 6-7 year olds How 2 Saves Lives 8-9 year olds How 2 Take Emergency Action 10-11 year olds Note: the lesson plans are designed for any age from 6-11 years old. In the first part of this book “How 2 Understand Safety Awareness”, children learn simple terminology related to safety and engage in a fun activity that help them conceptualize this. Their friend “Addie” is there to help them. Next, they learn simple steps that they can take to “save lives”. Here, the aim is once again to make them aware of what to do when someone is having a medical condition. Once, all activities of this book are completed, we hope that one day, one child will truly be a HERO! Dr. Khaled Al Awam, Ph. D., MPH Neonatal and Pediatric Respiratory Specialist Safety is everyone’s responsibility and being able to recognise a safe environment in and around children is the first step. Kids have an incredible curiosity and in their quest to discover new things, they may injure themselves or others around them. In this book, kids learn, in an interactive process, how to be aware of their surroundings, what possible items that may expose them to danger are and what do when they are or someone else is injured. Furthermore, the activities in this book enable the children to critically think and consider their role in helping others, to the best of their abilities, when someone else is in a dangerous situation. The safety of our children should be our primary concern. Allowing them to have an awareness of hazards, dangers and risks is the beginning of that journey. Addie the alien empowers children in an emotionally intelligent way to embrace thinking about safety as a habit. It is these vital habit forming concepts that are vital in maintaining their safety and that of others. Research shows that children are more prone to serious accidents that can sometimes be life threatening when they are either without adult supervision or in the presence of other children. The Addie the Alien awareness course gives the opportunity to help save lives

50 this or that question cards - Game of two extremes

50 this or that question cards - Game of two extremes

Keep your middle school and high school students active by playing the TWO EXTREMES game. The facilitator will use a stack of cards listing things, activities or places that fall at opposite ends of the spectrum, such as: salty or sweet, London or New York, Mac or PC. The students start standing in a big group, but when each choice is read, they move to the side of the room that the facilitator indicates is associated with their choice (see the arrows on the cards). Those who can’t make up their mind or don’t have a preference remain in the center. Students will see all of the things that they have in common with their classmates and will likely learn some new vocabulary while they’re at it! These cards are great for middle school or high school and can be used at any time, especially when everyone needs a break and needs to stand up and move around a bit. This activity requires no teacher prep once the set of cards is printed and cut out. Don’t want to print or don’t have time to do so? That’s ok! There’s a PDF file with only one card per page that you can project and play as a class. Included: PDF of big cards to project when you don’t want to print Stack of 50 cards to print, cut out, punch holes in and attach with a ring - Black and white & color copies provided How to play LICENSING TERMS: This purchase includes a license for one teacher only for personal use in their classroom.
