Help encourage safe mobility around your school! Teachers can use our lesson plan for students from Kindergarten to Grade Six or choose from a range of resources, activities and stories to engage students in learning to travel safely.
Teacher Guidance: Read A Safe Crossings Story to the class or have them take turns reading it to each other. Once the story is done invite students to engage with the story by creating illustrations to go along with the story, or by creating their own Safe Crossings Story!
Student Practice: Students can continue to explore road safety by creating their own illustrations for the Safe Crossings Story! Alternatively, students can choose to write their own safe crossings story!
Teacher Guidance: Use the Street Crossing Champions Activity to take all of the students' crosswalk safety practice and bring it to life!
Student Practice: Students can complete the Street Crossing Champions Illustration Activity and draw an illustration about their experience as a Street Crossing Champion. Their experiences can then be shared with the class or in their smaller Street Crossing Squads.
Teacher Guidance: Use the Safety is in Fashion Activity to re-emphasize the importance of utilizing reflective materials to move safely. This activity will show how students may be able to incorporate these safety elements into their daily lives in a fun way.
Student Practice: Challenge the students to take this activity home with them ant to engage their parents and siblings into moving and dressing for safety.
Teacher Guidance: Read the Safety is for Sharing story to re-emphasize how important it is that we all work together to move safely. If we help one another to learn the rules of the road, and to share stories we will all be a little bit safer.
Student Practice: Encourage the students to share their stories at home, with friends and help everyone become Vision Zero Ambassadors.
Teacher Guidance: Congratulations! You’ve used all of the Vision Zero Schoolkits digital resources to teach your students how to move safely! Give yourself a pat on the back for being an amazing advocate for safety on our streets and providing those learnings to the next generation of road users!
