  1. Write "Dangerous" on one side of magnetic white board and "Safe" on the other side.
  2. Explain to children the difference between dangerous items (not okay to touch) and safe items (okay to touch).  Encourage them to tell an adult if they see something dangerous.
  3. Hold up one photo at a time.  Ask children to identify pictures as dangerous or safe and place on white board in appropriate category.
