Little Red Kit
Students use the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood as a basis for discussing personal safety issues. Scenes from the fairy tale are matched to safety tips for today and discussed as a class. Students are then asked to take one of the scenes from the fairy tale and create a modern version to teach personal safety to today’s kids. They are then encouraged as a class to present their story to their parents and younger students. This reinforces the lessons and allows them to share the information with their parents and others.
