Water 'n Kids. Instructor Guide and Coloring Book. Boating Safety Programs for Children and Youth.
Coast Guard Auxiliary, St. Louis, MO. Dept. of Education.
This packet contains a coloring book on water safety and a guide for Coast Guard Auxiliary members making brief presentations to preschool and elementary school students through Grade 4. The guide discusses school or site contact and approval, equipment and teaching aids to bring to the classroom, and suggestions to the beginning instructor on group size, discussion, storytelling, and vocabulary. Outlines are provided for presentations based on the coloring book or a set of 19 slides. Since the presentation takes only 30-45 minutes, instructors should concentrate on four areas: (1) learn to swim, swim in a safe place, and swim with a buddy; (2) wear a life jacket; (3) obey boating safety rules (don't stand up, don't ride in the bow, and don't dangle arms and legs outside of the boat); and (4) know what to do in case of an emergency (boat overturns or someone falls in the water).
