Wet 'n' Safe. Water and Boating Safety. Grades 4-6.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
These lessons contain information that applies to almost every emergency situation involving water. Each lesson has three main components: depiction of an emergency situation, descriptions of actions that will avoid or remedy the emergency situation, and review and discussion questions with suggested answers. Part 1 has lessons on rescuing oneself in a water emergency and rescuing others. The lessons in part 2 describe situations that can occur on the ocean beach, and at other water areas, including swimming pools. The seven lessons in part 3 are based on boating accidents, including rafting accidents, boats turning over, rescuing other boaters, collisions, waterskiing accidents, boat fires, and falling overboard. A glossary and selected references are also included. (JD)
