Introduction to the lesson: Tell students “we are going to discuss types of emergency situations and how to call 911 to get help in those situations.” Presentation: Teacher shows a picture of an emergency situation and asks “What is happening? Students respond and teacher writes responses on the board. Teacher also asks students if they’ve ever been in an emergency situation. Create list of new vocabulary they will encounter in the lesson through these discussions. Practice Activities: Each student gets a piece of paper with an emergency situation written on it and a 4x4 blank square of paper. On the blank square of paper students will illustrate the sentence they received. Students share illustrations and sentence with whole class. Hand out the 911 Emergency Telephone Call dialogue.

With random partners, have students practice the dialogue showing their illustration to the person with whom they are speaking while they are stating their emergency situation.
