Stranger Danger Checklist · A stranger is anyone you don't know. You can't tell the good guys from the bad guys by how they look. You are responsible for keeping yourself safe when you're by yourself. · You are responsible for taking care of yourself. You are not responsible for taking care of grownups. Adults who need help should go to another adult. · Instinct is nature's way of talking to you - listen to that inner voice. · Have a "password" that is not shared with ANYONE outside your family. When someone, even somebody well known, asks or tells the child that they are to go with them because "Your Mom or Dad said..." ask for the password. DON'T GO unless they know the password.

Stranger Collage Clip magazine pictures of a variety of people. Take photographs of students and staff members -- to be photocopied or scanned into a computer and printed. Have children sort the pictures into two groups: "people we know" and "people we don't know". Write each of these headings on a separate piece of construction paper. Students glue pictures under appropriate headings.
All About Me cards height, weight, color of hair, eyes, make fingerprint....write child's signature....or they can if they know how (Do like on a post card or something like that)
Little Red Riding Hood We use the story of Little Red Riding Hood to help teach stranger danger. We change the story because we have the children act it out. The wolf locks Grannie in the closet. Wolf chases Red around a table. Woodsman hears, enters and chases wolf away. Props: a red hooded cape for Red (made out of a red bathrobe), Grannie: nite-cap and shaw, wolf: wolf-hat (took a wolf bedroom slipper, cut and hot glued onto a baseball cap), woodsman: flannel shirt.
