Lesson Story:

Ms. Ann brings in Fireman Dave to teach her students how to be safe in the event of a fire. Sally quickly declares her dislike for fires. Fires are simply too scary for her. Fireman Dave tells her that the more she learns about fires, the less scary it is. He used Sally to demonstrate what to do if fire gets on your body. The students learn that smoke rises and is the reason they should go down on their knees and crawl if there is a big fire inside the house. They also learn that in the event of a fire, they must feel the door before opening it. Sally is less scared of fires after the lesson.
