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 Emergency Preparedness lessons to be taught in the PE class. The topics include: Tornadoes, Earthquakes, Wild Fires, and Floods. Students will learn the definition of a natural disaster, the different types, why an emergency toolkit is important, and what to do if a natural disaster occurs. Students will participate in physical activity games that teach them what is and is not needed in an emergency toolkit and how to respond during a natural disaster. This lesson is great to celebration National Emergency Preparedness Month in September or anytime throughout the year!
