First Graders Visit Bullard Fire Department

The first graders at Bullard Primary visited the Bullard Fire Department today as part of a Project-Based Learning (PBL)  activity that they will be participating in this month.  PBL is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by investigating and responding to a complex question, problem, or challenge.

The field trip is the “gotcha” or entry event to raise excitement about the project. The students were able to visit with the firemen as well as tour the fire station.

The first grade teachers have various activities planned to help students learn more about why the fire department is important to the community, and what they can do to help the firemen.  Two firemen from the Bullard Fire Department will come visit the 1st graders this week to explain what they do on a daily basis as well as what they need after fighting fires. The students will then brainstorm ways they can help. Students will write a letter asking parents and community members to donate healthy snacks, water and Gatorade to the fire department.

On October 17, the fire department will return to Bullard Primary. At this time, the students will present them with the donations they have collected. This is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about how they as citizens can help their community.

Construction continues on the cut-through road that will link the MS parking lot with Panther Crossing, and parents can expect some delays for the next few days because of the construction.
