Children deserve to play and learn in safe environments. The earlier children understand safety concepts, the more naturally they will de¬velop the attitudes and respect that lead to lifelong patterns of safe behavior.

Suggested interest area materials and supports for creating the learning environment
Learning objectives and vocabulary words to introduce and use
Suggestions for evaluating children’s understanding of each topic
More than 30 hands-on classroom activities
Family information and take-home activities
