How To Be Safe Around Water | Aquatic Complex Field Trip | KidVision Pre-K


(fun music) – Today we’re at the Fort
Lauderdale Aquatic Complex, home of the International
Swimming Hall of Fame. We are here to learn about water safety. Look, there’s my friend Bruce. He’s the president of the International Swimming Hall of Fame. – Hi Children. Welcome to the Hall of Fame pools. Are you ready to learn about water safety? – [Children] Yeah! – [Bruce] All right, let’s go to our pool. – A pool. Wow, children use your eyes
and tell me what you see. – [Children] Big pools. – The two big pools are
used for competition and for lessons. – A clock. – The clock is used to
keep time during races. – There’s a lifeguard. – [Bruce] That’s Chase,
he’s going to be our lifeguard. Hi, Chase. – Hello, Bruce. Hey, Penny. Hi, kids. – How do we know Chase is a lifeguard? What is he wearing? – [Child] He’s wearing red. – [Child] His whistle. – That’s right, good job. Another way we know that
Chase is a lifeguard is the white cross on his
chest and it says lifeguard. – Now today we’re gonna
be doing some swimming, and we always need to
have an adult watching us to make sure we’re safe. So we always need to have a watcher. – I am going to be your official watcher. This sign means that
my job is to watch you while you’re in the water. – All right. So, let’s make our way over to the pool. Come on, guys. – What else should we look for, Chase? – Well, some pools have gates, and if there’s ever a
gate, you should never go in or near a pool without an adult. But since we have an adult,
let’s make our way to the pool. The next thing we need to
look for are safety signs. Do you see any? – [Child] Right there. (dings)
– Oh, that’s right. This is a no diving sign. And that means that the water in the pool is too shallow to dive in. Now, does anybody see any
other safety signs here? Which ones? – The number one. – The numbers, that’s very good. The numbers tell us how deep the pool is. The higher the numbers,
the deeper the water. That means that this pool
is only four feet deep, so that means it’s about this high. But since we’re only swimming,
let’s make our way over here. Come on. – Is there anything else we need to know before we get into the water? – Well, the most important safety rule is you need to know how to swim. Does everyone here know how to swim? – I know how to swim.
– Yes! – All right. Now let’s all walk feet
first into the water. Come here, everybody in. Feet first, feet first. – [Penny] Help each other. – All right. Now, whenever you’re in
trouble in the water, you always want to find a
way how to keep your head out of the water. Do we swim like a turtle? Come here. Ready, let’s float on our backs. All right. Now can you say help? Show me how to scream for help. – Help! – There we go. All right. Very nice. Now, each of you are
gonna show me how we swim all the way to the ladder. Ready Miss Nicole? Swim all the way to that ladder. (quick music) All right, you ready Miss Angie? Go. All right, Miss Emily, you ready? Let’s go. Let’s go all the way to the ladder. Go. – Yay! You’re safe. High five. All right. Great job. Now remember, if you’re ever swimming and you get in trouble, don’t panic. Just keep your face up
and swim like an animal. – [Man] Whoa. – [Bruce] To be a good diver
requires a lot of practice and a lot of skill. You have to be able to control your body while you’re flying through the air. – Wow. Bruce, how do we determine the winner of a diving competition? – Well, when the divers enter the water they make a small splash. A smaller splash. And the diver that has
the smallest splash wins. (audience cheers) – Go, go, go, go, go.
(kids cheering) – [Bruce] Swimmers also
participate in races. Swimmers swim fast. Faster. And the fastest ones win. (all cheering) Another sport is water polo. – [Man] Pass it back to him again! Go ahead and shoot, shoot! – [Bruce] It’s like soccer in the water, but you use your hands and the team with the most points wins. – Wow, Bruce. These kids are so good. I bet one of these days
they’d make the Olympics and win a gold medal. – Well in fact, Penny, some of the kids who have trained here have gone on to win Olympic gold medals. Why don’t we go back to the museum and I’ll show you some of
those real gold medals. – Wow, that’s exciting. Let’s go. – Okay. Come on, children. Yeah. Welcome to the International
Swimming Hall of Fame Museum. This is where we recognize and honor people who love swimming and
have excelled in water sports. – That is excellent. Can you show us around? – Sure. – [Penny] There are so many things to see. Beautiful costumes, famous
divers, and Olympic swimmers. – Would you like to see a
real Olympic gold medal? – [Children] Yes. – Okay. To get a gold medal means you
are the best in the world. When you win an Olympic gold medal, you stand on a podium and
everybody cheers for you. Now let’s see what you
remember about water safety and see if you too can win a gold medal. – [Penny] There are four
tips we learned today about water safety. (dings) An adult should always be with you when you are near the water. (dings) Never open a locked pool gate. (dings) If you feel you’re in
trouble, act like an animal. Stay calm and yell for help. – Help! (dings)
– The most important water safety tip is to learn to swim. Good girl. – [Children] I’m a gold medal winner. – [Bruce] Yay!
