The Safety and Life Skills Program helps children become more aware of their surroundings and includes projects and activities that teach kids about stranger danger, online safety, bullying and more. Since all materials are provided for free from Modern Woodmen, the program is easy to implement and it is intended for use in a learning environment.
This program is designed to meet national standards as well as Common Core State Standards.
