A police unit study can be used at any time, although you might want to use it to emphasize safety skills at the start of the school year or in observance of the anniversary of 9-11. Today, I’m sharing the links to free printables I’ve used to create Montessori-inspired police activities for preschoolers through kindergarteners.
I show how I used the printables to prepare the Montessori-inspired activities. I also have links to other posts with additional ideas and presentations.
Free Police Printables Used in the Pictured Police Activities for Preschoolers-Kindergarteners
How Many Fingerprints? Activity
Free Printable: Police Printables ~ Preschool at Homeschool Creations
This activity used a free printable from the Police Printables ~ Preschool Packet at Homeschool Creations. It also uses an ink pad, stapler, and inexpensive tray from the grocery store. After the child places the correct number of fingerprints on each page, a “How Many Fingerprints?” booklet could be created.
Catch the Robber Math Game
Free Printable: Catch the Robber from the Safety Mini Unit printable (clear box under Day 3)from A Teaching Mommy
Learning to Call 911
Free Printable: Learning to Dial 9-1-1 from I Can Teach My Child
I Can Teach My Child has a creative printable for Learning to Dial 9-1-1 along with helpful ideas for introducing 9-1-1. Children could practice calling 911 first on the printable, then on a cordless phone, and then on a cell phone. I cut out extra numbers from the printable so the children could place the numbers 9-1-1 in the order needed in an emergency.
Police Badge Punching Activity
Free Printable: Hero Badge from Pastiche Family Portal
Police Car Skip Counting by 2s to 100
Free Printable: Numberline Freebies from City Teacher Goes Country
For this activity, I used the Numberline Freebies from City Teacher Goes Country. There are also police car numbers in the printable for counting by 10s, although I chose counting by 2s to 100 for this activity. Many children like big projects and would enjoy placing the numbers in order by twos in a long line across the floor.
Police Station and Police Car Craft
This is an activity for children with advanced cutting and assembly skills. I used Police Station and Police Car printables from Canon Creative Park. UPDATE: Unfortunately, the printable is no longer available.
