ALJ Key Club Presents Stranger-Danger to Preschool

Clark Preschoolers were treated to a visit by the ALJ Key Club to present a lesson on Stranger-Danger.
ALJ Key Club members performed a skit to help demonstrate the importance of not trusting strangers.  

CLARK, NJ - The Arthur L. Johnson High School Key Club presented a unit on Stranger Danger to the children of the Clark Preschool.  The Key Club, sponsored by Kiwanis International has a mission to serve the children of the world. 

The ALJ students provided hands-on lessons to the children about suspicious behaviors in strangers.  The high school students performed a skit depicting the fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood.”  The familiar tale has been read to children for decades to portray how strangers can be dangerous and often resort to trickery to get what they want.

This simple story amused the children and produced a valuable lesson of the importance of being careful about trusting strangers.  Numerous popular fairy tales such as; Cinderella, Rapunzel, The Little Mermaid, and The Three Little Pigs, also offer  unique learning opportunities and help children to learn to think critically about interacting with people they don’t know.

 The Key Clubbers reinforced the lesson by teaching the key terms, no, go, yell, and tell, words that quickly remind children what to do when they encounter stranger danger.   They ended their presentation by involving the preschoolers in some short scenarios to practice their newly acquired skills.  Each child received an “I Am Special” medal given to them by the Key Clubbers.   

The Key Club is under the guidance of Ms. Ellen Zamboni.
