NFPA's TakeAction: Teens for Wildfire Safe Communities

Created as part of NFPA's TakeAction: Teens for Wildfire Safe Communities ,  each of these videos comes with a lesson plan.  In each video, classes will learn about a major US fire and learn from experts how the people and land recovered over time.  The materials aim to teach students about the short- and long-term impact of wildfires; introduce key terms and concepts; and empower students to get involved in protecting their homes, neighborhoods, and natural resources and to participate in awareness-raising community projects.  These lessons are designed for students in grades 6-8 who live in or near areas at risk for wildfire, and the materials align with Common Core standards for Language Arts.
