I was at the library and thought I would peruse the shelves to see if there were any videos I could find on either health or safety. I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were two videos for each topic. You may not have the same titles at your library as I do, but why not check your system or drop by your library to see what they have? This is an easy way to meet the Ohio requirement for health and fire safety for your homeschool. 🙂
Part of the description for Lots and Lots of Fire says that, ” You’ll see the biggest collection of firefighting and rescue equipment ever recorded on DVD.” I think that is pretty cool! Also included in the DVD are segments about topics such as Stop, Drop and Roll, and creating your fire escape plan. It is a 30-minute video and more information can be obtained by going to www.lotsandlotsoffiretrucks.com
The 12 minute Timon and Pumba Safety Smart Honest and Real video is twofold in nature. Described on the back cover of the DVD case, it not only talks about topics such as travel, internet, and fire safety, but it includes developing character issues such as kindness, honesty, and responsibility.
For grades K-3, Goofy’s Health Hits has two segments concerning health. The first is 13 minutes and is about Goofy going to the dentist and learning about dental health. The second 10-minute section has both animated and live action about the transmission and prevention of cold viruses. It also discusses the importance of nutrition and exercise.
Here are worksheets to accompany the videos. They can also be used alone if you prefer.
The American Dental Association has downloadable coloring pages, word puzzles, How to Brush pages, and certificates to print.
Let’s have Fun with Fire Safety is a free 12-page downloadable informational coloring book that discusses home and kitchen safety and fire escape routes.
Turtle Diary has several Personal Hygiene worksheets including sequencing of washing your hands, and taking a bath and showering.
Have a great day!
