Home Alone

This Home Alone unit also includes:

Summer comes around and so does a lot of free time. Many kids spend most of their summer home alone, and it is important they are prepared with appropriate summer safety skills. Here, four activities offer grand discussion about daily activity ideas, what do to in case of an emergency, and who to call for help. The lesson also gives advice for answering the phone and door, and arriving at home when no one is there.
