Bicycle Education, A New Dimension in 4-H Programs for 8-11 Year Olds: Designed into Three Teaching Units.
Borst, William H.
The three teaching units in this packet are designed to help children ages 8 to 11 enjoy, utilize, and safely ride bicycles by mastering skills and knowledge pertaining to their bicycles, their driving ability, and the traffic system. Unit I is concerned with the bicycle and its parts, various kinds of bicycles, and proper size and maintenance. Unit II involves traffic signs, traffic safety, and driver's signals. Unit III is built around a demonstration of the child's ability to stop, balance at a slow speed, maneuver, ride in a traffic pattern, and react quickly on a bicycle. Each unit contains complete lesson plans; material lists; and masters for visuals, class hand-outs, and quizzes. Answer sheets are included. The packet also includes full color replicas of 24 actual road signs and a copy of "Safe Cycling for Bikers of All Ages", a publication put out by the Kansas Department of Transportation. (SB)
