Directions and materials for approximately 200 kindergarten-level safety learning activities, intended to develop the perceptual skills of young pedestrians and to train kindergarten children in safe conduct on the school bus, on bicycles, in an auto, and in the school environment are provided. Concepts and skills are taught through activities from various curriculum areas, including art, dance, dramatization, movement, music, poetry, prereading and science. In addition, ideas are given for bulletin boards, feltboards and field trips. The materials can be used selectively or in sequence. Nearly half of the document consists of lesson materials for developing the perceptual skills of pedestrians, including exercises for gross motor as well as visual and auditory perception. The remaining four safety content areas are more briefly developed. The document also provides (1) pre- and post-tests for a few activities; (2) approximately 40 masters that can be reproduced for classroom use; (3) a cross reference list enabling the teacher to select activities in terms of safety area, integrated subjects, type of activity and/or type of skill taught; (4) a bibliography including films, teacher preparation books and materials, children's books and curriculums and instructional materials; (5) a list of resource persons; and (6) learning activity and safety film evaluation forms.
