A Collections Based Discovery Program
The Denver Firefighters Museum invites teachers of preschool to third grade to evaluate our new object-based discovery trunk. Your students will explore, through hands-on activities with actual firefighter equipment, a glimpse into the day-to-day life of a firefighter. Activities include: Dressing for a Fire, Tools of the Trade, Communicating Fires, Fire Stations, and the Denver Firefighters Museum. Along with the objects from the Museum’s educational collection comes a photo album of objects, such as fire trucks, that are too large to include in a typical truck program.
And, the trunk comes with the “Great 911 Adventure” that teaches children how and when to call 911 through a video presentation.
Finally, the trunk comes with a full week’s curriculum of fire safety and prevention activities, videos, books, web-based activities, supporting materials, and a field trip guide of pre and post activities to the Denver Firefighters Museum.
