Ready Kids Teaching Guide   [open pdf - 453KB]

This 8-page document from Ready.gov provides a teaching guide, poster, and activities for teaching children about preparedness. "The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is working together with state and local government and private sector partners to prepare the nation and the nation's schools for emergencies of all kinds. As we have encouraged families and school administrators to prepare for emergencies, we have often been asked if there is information appropriate to share with children. We have created 'Ready Kids' in response to these requests. 'Ready Kids' is part of the 'Ready' campaign, a commonsense framework designed to promote learning about emergency preparedness. 'Ready Kids' is a family-friendly resource for teachers and parents to help facilitate discussions about emergency preparedness. In addition to these in-school activity sheets produced by Scholastic Inc., the program includes a Web site that features age-appropriate, step-by-step instructions on what families can do to be better prepared and the role kids can play. Thank you for the role you play in our children's lives. I hope that you will play an equally active role in educating your students and their families about how they can prepare for emergencies. Please visit www.ready.gov and click on 'Ready Kids' to learn more."
