Pedestrian Safety: Injury Control Curriculum Guide (For K - 3rd Grade). Second Edition.
Wooner, Rosestelle B., Ed.
This curriculum guide attempts to help the early childhood teacher show children how to incorporate safety precautions into daily life. Good safety practices can prevent the death or injury of young children by automobile, truck, bus, pedestrian, bicycle, and tricycle accidents. The guide focuses on student involvement in the learning process and includes sections on pedestrian safety, vehicle safety, and pedestrian and vehicle safety evaluation procedures. The sections are subdivided into cluster concepts, with related behavioral objectives and learning episodes. Included in each section are learning activities, arranged in order of difficulty, which relate safety rules and precautions to the children's own lifestyles in order to help them evaluate and make decisions concerning potentially hazardous situations. The last section offers further suggestions for implementation of objectives and concepts. (ED)
