Introducing the lesson

Part of Lesson Plan: How to use a dry chemical fire extinguisher (updated) by Ramon C. Iniguez

Activity Overview / Details

After the students are seated and ready, I tell them a story of a man frying chicken on a frying pan. The man is in a hurry to make his meal so he turns up the flame on the stove. In his haste, the grease catches fire.

I ask the students, “What could the man use to extinguish the fire if a fire extinguisher is not available?” After a short class discussion in which I tell the students that a pan lid could be used to smother the fire, I introduce the fire triangle and begin the lesson.
