Danger Ranger Episode: Cave Save

DO 
Cave Safety

  • Students will be able to:
  • State the first safety rules of cave exploration.
  • Discuss with children what they think a cave is.
  • Explain why it is so easy to get lost in caves.
  • Explain that cave entrances may be small and inconspicuous, even if the cave is very large.
  • Compare what happened in the story to what could happen in real life
  • Let the children use clay to make their own caves, perhaps go outside and collect small stones that could add to the look of the real cave.  If you time permits find other media resources to add to the experience.
  • If you know of a spelunker—person who explores caves—let them come speak to the children.  Make it a real experience.
