Activity: Model Talking to Safe Strangers
to discuss on-topic
- Ask the learners, "What is the difference between a dangerous stranger and a safe stranger?
- 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.).
- 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."
- Have the learners pretend to be dangerous strangers. The educator models how to react if a stranger danger situation occurs.
