- NHTSA Elementary School Teaching Curriculum
A new pedestrian safety curriculum for grades K--5 from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration it can be found at http://www.nhtsa.gov/ChildPedestrianSafetyCurriculum.
The curriculum was developed to teach and encourage practice in safe pedestrian behaviors for students at the elementary level (grades kindergarten through fifth). It is organized into five lessons that target the main areas of pedestrian safety: walking near traffic, crossing streets, crossing intersections, parking lot safety, and school bus stop and school bus safety. Each lesson builds upon each previous set of skills learned.
All grades receive instruction in the five areas of pedestrian safety mentioned above. However, to promote developmentally appropriate teaching, the curriculum includes three divisions: kindergarten and first grade, second and third grade, and fourth and fifth grade. The lessons build in difficulty throughout subsequent years, require greater problem-solving opportunities, and encourage peer modeling and discussion.
The overall goal of the curriculum is skill development. While children may be aware of ways to stay safe as pedestrians, the purpose of this program is to help children develop that knowledge into an automatic response in behavior.
Please let your partners know about this new resource and share the link with them. In addition to being available on the NHTSA website we will also be publishing the curriculum on a CD-Rom (due to arrive in the spring of 2011).
