As part of my huge order for my new classroom, I ordered lots of curriculum, but since I don't have any of it yet, I have had to improvise for everything. One of the units I have been working on is emergencies. I originally wanted to just start with several social stories regarding our emergency procedures, such as fire drills and lockdown drills, but decided to make it a whole safety and emergency unit. I purchased ALL About Emergencies from The Autism Helper, and you can find her unit here. But I found that it was a little too high for some of my lower kids. So I made a book that will be adapted once I get on boardmaker this week. I will upload those icons when I am done. But here are snapshots of the book and if I can figure it out, I will stick it on my google drive so you can get a copy of it. I also have made a few file folders to sort and match different emergencies and emergency vehicles and personnel. And I plan to add more to it. But I will post those later.
Here is the link to the book on google documents.
This is the cover page
I am covering just 4 kinds of emergencies: medical, police, fire, and natural disasters
Brief description of medical emergencies
Natural disaster. Since we live in Seattle, I included possible natural disaster we can have here, but I also included tornadoes and hurricanes which we don't have in our neck of the woods.
We will role play this.
Covering why it's important to call 911 only in emergencies.
We don't actually have tornado drills here, but I will tell them other places do. We do have the others, so we will practice those.
And then a series of social stories for the various drills.
