Smokey the Bear Forest Fire Safety Unit Part 3 & FREEBIE!

Posted: October 24, 2014 in Vintage Curriculum


Smokey the Bear Forest Fire Safety Unit Part 3  & FREEBIE!

In our first Smokey the Bear Forest Fire Safety Unit post, Part 1 (If you missed it, click here: Smokey the Bear Forest Fire Safety Unit Part 1) I introduced the unit using vintage Smokey posters, Smokey Bulletin Boards, records, theater plays, and videos.


Our second post (If you missed part 2, click here:  Smokey the Bear Forest Fire Safety Unit Part 2 ) we learned about Fire Triangles, did an experiment and made a fire triangle for our Wildfire Chart Center.

Both Parts one & two include FREEBIES for you to print out available at our Teacher’s Notebook Store:

 AKGVH Teacher’s Notebook Store

This here third post are pocket chart and flannel board games covering the right and wrong of forest behavior. The name of these games is “Glad Smokey & Sad Smokey.” What makes Smokey glad? What makes Smokey sad? (You can find your FREEBIE Glad & Sad Smokey Puppets at the bottom of this post.)

Using our pocket chart first, I introduced Smokey’s Forestry rules, right and wrong in detail. I wrote sentences on sentence strips and added the matching picture as I read each one. I asked the children, “Does this make Smokey Glad or Sad?” as I placed the picture next to its sentence.


 

I have made an entire 61 page pack featuring large color, large B & W, small color, & small B & W pictures with sentences available here for purchase:

Glad & Sad Smokey Flannelboard & Pocket Chart Pictures & Sentences Pack

In the pack I included the above sentences and pictures in both color and B & W. To save on computer ink, you may want to write out the sentences on sentence strips like I did. Here are some from Amazon:

Then we did a Glad Smokey, Sad Smokey Flannelboard game. I printed out the pictures on milk filters. They make excellent flannelboard pieces. You will have to cut the filters to fit your printer. Insert the filters one at a time when printing. You can get some of these bodaciously boss filters here:

 Hamby Dairy Supply Milk Filters

I spread out the felt pictures and had each child in rote choose a picture, then decide if the picture made Smokey glad or sad. Here is our finished flannelboard game:

  

Next I had each child color a Glad & Sad Smokey:



We cut them out and put them on tongue depressors. If you are in need of tongue depressors, Amazon has some:



//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=tf_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=akingar-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B0011Z82YO&asins=B0011Z82YO&linkId=W5A7FZAPJ4MZUOTY&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true 

 eBay has quite a selection:

Tongue Depressors

When their Smokey’s are dry, re-read the sentences. Have the children raise either “Glad” or “Sad” Smokey in the air.  

 

You can play this game with your babes using our FREEBIE Glad Smokey, Sad Smokey Stick Puppet Patterns LINKY from our AKGVH Teacher’s Notebook Store. These come in color and B & W to choose from:
