First Grade Curriculum

This off-the-shelf curriculum kit is designed to engage students in safety education, and give you the ability to seamlessly fit these vital lessons into your existing classroom schedule. This curriculum delivers critical safety information appropriate for first-graders, strengthening the concept that children already have the tools needed to protect themselves from any situation making them feel confused, scared, or “icky.”

In this curriculum, Buddy is an explorer and is searching for his safety tools to place in his Safety Tool Belt. To expand upon the Kindergarten curriculum, the lessons in the first grade curriculum teach safety practices, which children can use to become their own first line of defense.
