Grade 7 and 8 Lesson Plans

The grade 7 and 8 lesson plans incorporate technology and its impact on distraction in all modes of transportation. These lessons have classroom, gym and outdoor activities that can be adapted for the settings that you have available to you. While students are not yet driving, one of the lessons highlights distractions that impact non-drivers too, whether they are walking, cycling, blading or boarding.  Rubrics for evaluation are available for each lesson plan.

If you are looking for more information on any of the topics covered for other classes in your school or in the community at large, take a look at the Community Engagement Kits.
