Learning Plan Title: “Safe or Unsafe?”


HE.K.5.3 Differentiate between safe and unsafe situations involving touch.

Performance Descriptor:

Mastery Level:  Students will differentiate between safe and unsafe situations involving touch.


Pictures or index cards describing “safe and unsafe situations”.

Learning Plan

  • Teacher will cite situations (e.g. getting into a car with a stranger - unsafe , running in the school halls  - unsafe , coloring in a coloring book - safe ). Discuss what may be a good touch or a bad touch in relationship to personal safety.
  • Teacher will instruct the students to remain seated if they feel the above situations are "safe" and stand if they feel the situations are "unsafe".
  • A different twist could be to use pictures of "safe" and "unsafe" situations instead of using verbal cues. (Caution must be exercised when presenting pictures. Make sure community norms are respected).
  • Teacher will discuss appropriate touches and what to say and do.
