Summary:Do you know how fast a wildfire moves? The damage it can cause? What you can do to make yourself safer? Find the answers to these and other questions by taking a virtual field trip to the scene of a wildfire. This three-part video series and accompanying lesson plans for students in grades 6-12, produced by the National Fire Protection Association as part of the TakeAction! Teens for Wildfire Safe Communities campaign, examines what happens to people, property, and natural areas one year, five years, and 10 years after a major wildfire. A fourth video offers tips for teens to take action to prevent wildfires. The materials support CCSS for language arts and can be used in both the classroom and in community outreach efforts.
