Getting There! Mini-Units and Learning Activities on Transportation Safety for Grades 6 through 9.
Wolff, Peter; And Others
One of a series of eleven curriculum manuals which cover the four transportation topics of public transportation, transportation and the environment, transportation safety, and bicycles for elementary, secondary, and adult levels, this manual covers the transportation safety topic for grades 6-9. The manual contains forty-seven learning activities grouped into ten mini-units. Each mini-unit consists of a lesson plan component, which provides a suggested sequence of learning activities, and an individual learning activities component, which describes in detail how to implement each exercise. The first mini-unit provides a survey of issues related to transportation safety; the rest are as follows: understanding driving habits, learning about safety belts, drinking and driving, buying a car, learning about pedestrian safety, learning how to be safe while boating, learning about emergency vehicles, being safe on various vehicles, and promoting transportation safety through consumer/citizen action. A final section offers additional activities that may be used to evaluate or supplement evaluation of an activity or mini-unit. Also included are lists of references for further study resources and masters for reproduction of role profiles, game boards, maps, and other distributable materials. (A curriculum guide, CE 014 028, is also available for use with the manuals.) (TA)
