Activity: Model Talking to Safe Strangers

Objective:

to discuss on-topic

Materials:

Prep:


Instructions:

  1. Ask the learners, "What is the difference between a dangerous stranger and a safe stranger?
  2. As a group, brainstorm times when learners would need to talk to a safe stranger (lost in a store, talking to a bus driver for directions, telling a crossing guard you need to cross, asking a lifeguard for help, asking a police officer for help, etc.).
  3. Have learners take turns being a safe stranger and the educator models what to say during different situations.
  • "Excuse me officer.  My name is ______________ and I'm lost.  Can you please call my parents?  My number is: ________________."
  • "Excuse me cashier.  I can't find my parents in the store.  Can you call them to the front of the store please?  Their names are __________________ and _________________."
  • "Hello bus driver.  My stop is on __________________ street.  This is the first time I have ridden this bus and I'm a little scared.  Can you please remind me when to get off?  Thank you."

Extension:

  • Have the learners pretend to be dangerous strangers.  The educator models how to react if a stranger danger situation occurs.

Reflections:

  • I am able to discuss on-topic.
  • I am able to explain community safety rules.
  • I am able to speak clearly.
