Miss Mingo and the Fire Drill
Miss Mingo's class is learning about fire safety. They have a fire drill, which proves to be a bit chaotic as all of the different animals put up their defence mechanisms. The octopus squirts ink, the snake puffs up, the elephants stomps his feet, and much more, but they make it through the chaos to finish the drill successfully. This humorous story contains facts under the images to explain each animal's defence while also teaching about firefighters, fire drills, and stop, drop, and roll.
