"Welcome to FEMA's Be a Hero curriculum, an empowering educational journey into emergency preparedness! This standards-based, cross-curricular program is designed to provide students in grades 1 and 2 with the knowledge, awareness, and life-saving skills needed to prepare for a variety of emergencies and disasters. By engaging in three inquiry-based lessons, students will gain a personal and meaningful understanding of disaster preparedness in the context of real-world hazards. All learning activities lead to important learning through collaborative fact-finding and sharing. By the final lesson, students will become 'heroes' as they develop their own Ready Books on emergency preparedness. Using communication skills and creativity, they will generate awareness of emergency preparedness among friends, families, and the school community. Knowledge empowers! We hope this program will help you, your students, and their families feel prepared."
