Grade 4 to 6 Lesson Plans

As students gain more independence, they will encounter new situations and have new decisions to make – and when it comes to road safety, these decisions can be critical. These lesson plans provide scenarios for decision making around cycling, inline skating and skateboarding, as well as opportunities to visually identify risks and express ways to minimize those risks. There is also an outdoor group activity on pedestrian safety that includes instruction on a variety of communication skills.

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.
