Summer Safety

The lessons in this kit are from two sources: the Safe Passages water safety curriculum is from the U.S. Corps of Engineers and the Sunwise sun safety curriculum was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The idea for this kit is to send students off on summer vacation with some important safety skills for fun around water and in the sun. The 3 water safety lessons cover safe swimming rules, boating safety (especially the proper use of lifejackets), and water rescue techniques. The 3 sun safety lessons discuss the positive and negative effects of sun, introduce the concept of ultraviolet radiation, and teach students safe-sun behaviors. For the water safety lessons, the kit has a video, blacklines, and brochures in English and Spanish to send home to families. For the sun safety lessons, the kit has a PowerPoint Presentation (available on the web and on a CD in the kit), a read-aloud story (English and Spanish), blacklines, and brochures in English and Spanish to send home to families.
