It's No Accident: A Consumer Product Safety Education Curriculum Resource Guide for Teachers of Grades 3 through 6.
Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, DC.
This guide for teachers contains product safety information appropriate for young children and suggests learning activities for third through sixth graders. Activities encourage children to examine their home environments for safety hazards and to share this information with family and friends. Unit 1 introduces five basic safety concepts upon which all seven remaining units are built: risk, hazard, prevention, control, and responsibility. The subsequent seven units apply the basic safety concepts to the areas of home fire safety; playground safety; bicycle, roller skate, and skateboard safety; poison prevention; toy safety; holiday safety; and electrical safety. Each unit provides an introduction; a statement of basic philosophy and purpose; a summary of objectives; suggested discussion questions; activity charts coordinating objectives, student competencies, and activities; a glossary defining consumer product safety terms in a way children can understand; and teacher resource information about safety principles and hazards.
