When you have read and enjoyed the F.I.D.O Adventures and learnt a bit about the Real Rescue dogs here at Hampshire & Isle of Wight Fire & Rescue Service, why not try these follow up activity ideas for the classroom or at home:
Write a fictional newspaper article based on an incident that the arson dogs may have attended
Do some research about other working dogs online: what breeds are popular as working dogs, how many organisations can you name who use working dog – test your adults at home
Why not see what the real arson dogs are up to on twitter: @hantsfiredogs
Write a story of a dog who solves a mystery or a crime – you could do it as a cartoon strip like Scooby Doo
Write a care plan for a working dog, think about the differences between a working dog and a pet
Paint a portrait of your dog or a dog you would like to own
Make up a play to show your friends – who will be the hero?
Write a letter to one of the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service dogs telling them what you’ve learned about keeping safe – they like hearing from young people like you
