A healthy and safe physical environment is important for the success of both students and staff. The physical environment includes spaces inside, outside, and around the school. Below are resources for local and national initiatives working to keep the physical environments of schools safe.
It's All About Kids has also developed an Emergency Preparedness lesson to be taught in the PE class. Students learn about what a natural disaster is and the different types, why an emergency toolkit is important, and what to do if a natural disaster occurs. Students participate in games that teach them what does and does not need to be in an emergency toolkit and the difference between a tornado watch and warning. This lesson is great to celebration National Emergency Preparedness Month in September or anytime throughout the year!
