A K-3 Lesson on Stranger Danger, the Uh-Oh Feeling and Internet Safety

As the weather warms up and kids play outside more (and as we need some good easy to implement lessons)… now  is a great time to do a lesson teaching our students some important safety tips. This week I did a lesson in 2nd grade (which can be adapted for K-3) that’s easy to implement and delivered lots of information in 30 minutes.

Using this PPT on Safety stranger and the Uh Oh feeling, the lesson flows with 2 video clips embedded. (Click on the video icons in the ppt to see them)

Or view them here:

Billy learns a lesson about what to do when someone wants to give him a ride. The man even knows his name. (About 5 minutes)    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEtJtFEVDbI    


Internet Safety Smarts. Pumba teaches Timon not to give out personal information online (about 2 minutes)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-njh8mFvVk&nohtml5=False

The content of the lesson includes:

  • What/Who is a stranger?
  • There are good strangers (sunny day) and not so good strangers (stormy day) and children have a difficult time telling the difference.
  • We all have an inner siren, an uh-oh feeling, and if this siren goes off with stranger OR with people we know, we need to get help.
  • It is never a child’s fault if a grown up breaks a safety rule and it is OK to say no and to run if your safety is at risk.
  • Children need to know their phone number and address for safety reasons.
  • Internet safety is important to review starting YOUNG.

I hand out this Safety (Address /Phone Number) Worskheet at the end of the lesson so that students can review the safety rules with their parents and also review or learn their safety information.

I hope this is helpful as spring fever sets in. 🙂

    1. You are welcome and so glad to make your lesson planning a tad bit easier. 🙂 And thank you so much for letting me know of my hyperlink malfunction.
      I did a quick edit within the PPT and also added the links to the blog post. Let me know if it works now. Let me know if there are any other lessons you might be looking for and I can send some your way.

  2. Thank you for posting this power point. I was looking for some interesting safety lessons. I could not open the video links within the power point; could you send me the link for those?
