FIRST AID AWARENESS FOR KIDS
This is a series of 8 lessons, lesson plans and visual aids. A complete term of lessons to be taught once a week with easy guidance for you to teach the children basic first aid awareness.
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!

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 Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations led the initiative for the education of children in 2012. He firstly wanted every child to be able to attend school, a goal by 2015. Secondly, to improve the skillset acquired in these schools.
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 focuses on minimising the impact of children being put in harms way. The book continues to educate them on how they can even administer basic first aid to potentially save the lives of those around them.
