Intended to train first grade students in safe conduct on the school bus, on bicycles, in an auto and in the school environment and to develop the perceptual skills they need as pedestrians, this curriculum provides directions and materials for approximately 150 safety learning activities. Safety concepts and skills are taught through activities from various curriculum areas, including art, math, music, prereading and science. In addition, ideas are given for auditory and visual perception activities, bulletin boards and field trips, and other learning experiences. 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 gross motor as well as exercises for visual and auditory perception. While the remaining four safety content areas are more briefly developed, lesson materials for teaching school bus safety are emphasized. The document also provides (1) pre- and post-tests for a few activities; (2) approximately 65 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 citing films and filmstrips, teacher preparation books and materials, games and children's books and curriculum and instructional materials; (5) a list of resource persons; and (6) learning activity and film evaluation forms.
