Safety education is an important part of the Education E. We have created several resources to use for increasing safe walking and biking skills of the children at your schools.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Child Pedestrian Safety Curriculum includes age-appropriate lessons for students in grades grades K-5. This user-friendly and adaptable curriculum incorporates both skill-building and knowledge-based learning and meets six Georgia physical education performance standards; four for Physical Education and two for Health Education.
View the short “How To” video on the NHTSA Child Pedestrian Safety Education curriculum. The video tells more about the curriculum and includes example pages of:
- The five lessons;
- How the curriculum is adapted for different age groups;
- What resources are available for teachers; and
- Take home materials for parents.
The Walk Across Town booklet is a fun activity for students (best for 4th or 5th grades).
Are you ready for an adventure in math, science, “green” transportation, and physical activity? Through this activity booklet students will learn how to use a pedometer, how easy it is to walk to close locations, and how to calculate their carbon footprint. To easily print the document and assemble as a booklet, please select this PRINT version.
The Resource Center’s Bicycle Rodeo Toolkit provides a comprehensive approach to planning, conducting, and evalulating this fun and effective training event. The toolkit is available for download at this link.
Includes additional pedestrian, bicycle and personal security resources such as tip sheets, activity sheets, webinars, videos, and other resources developed by the Georgia Department of Transportation, National Center for Safe Routes to School, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and other organizations.
Bicycle safety lesson plans and curriculum resources developed by organizations across the country. Where a curriculum or set of lesson plans includes both bicycle and pedestrian elements, the bicycle safety elements are noted.
