Answers may vary. www.k5learning.com K5 Learning 2019 57 Level Reader oxygen burning breathe fire heat fuel The Fire Triangle The best part of camping is making smores. Before we can make smore, we must have campfire. It takes three things to start fire: oxygen, fuel, and heat. We call these three things the fire triangle. Oxygen is part of the air around us. We cannot see it, smell it or taste it. We breathe in oxygen all the time. Fire needs oxygen to burn. Fuel is anything that will burn. For campfires, we use wood. Wood is easy to find in the forest from old trees which have fallen down. www.k5learning.com K5 Learning 2019 58 Level Reader The final part of the fire triangle is heat. Heat is needed to start the fire. We use heat source to start the fire. Most of us light fire with matches. Once fire has started, it can make its own heat, so we dont have to keep using more and more matches. Before we start fire, we should also know how to stop fire. To stop fire, we take away one of the things from the fire triangle. The easiest way is to stop putting more wood on the fire. When the fire runs out of fue l, it will stop. We can also try to take away the oxygen by pouring water, or shoveling sand, over the fire. That stops the air from reaching the fire. Without oxygen, the fire will stop burning. Now we know how to start and stop fire. Let make some smores! www.k5learning.com K5 Learning 2019 59 Level Reader Get your graham crackers and chocolate ready.
