Child Safety Lesson & Spot It Activity

Do you teach a Parenting or Child Development class and need a new idea for teaching about child safety? Sharing a new Child Safety Lesson & Spot It Activity for you to try! The beauty of this lesson is that it is versatile and can be used digitally or you can print off the slides and set it up as stations to incorporate movement into your routine!


  • Ask students how many of them remember some ways their parents child-proofed their homes. Whip around and ask students to share some of the examples they remember.
  • Let’s see how good your observation and child safety skills are! Place students into small groups and have them work together to complete the “What’s RIGHT? What’s WRONG? Spot It activity”. NOTE:  This activity can be done digitally or you can add movement by printing off the slides and turning them into stations for students to circulate through.
  • Whichever way you choose have students closely observe the picture and brainstorm in their groups their predictions/answers to the prompts by filling in their charts.


  • iPads or Laptops
  • Projector & Screen


  • Once students have completed all of the prediction prompts on their chart for each room, ask them to share their answers while you display the room on the screen. Then go over the correct or actual answers from the article. Have students write down the actual answers for any they predicted incorrectly. For those predictions they got correct, have them draw a “star” as this will indicate their predicted answer was in fact correct.
  • Optional: Survey student groups to see who got the most predictions correct and award them bonus points or a small prize.
  • After going through the actual answers, assign concluding assessment, titled 3-2-1 Exit prompts, that follow on their chart document. These can be collected for a grade and/or shared orally with the class.
