Directions and materials for approximately 110 fourth grade level trafic safety learning activities, intended to develop the perceptual skills of young pedestrians and to train fourth grade students in safe conduct on the school bus, on bicycles, in an auto and in the school environment, are provided. Safety concepts and skills are taught through art, math, music, reading, science, and social studies lessons. More than half of the curriculum material is focused on pedestrian perceptual safety and auto passenger safety activities. Shape discrimination, symbol recognition, pedestrian rules, and mileage computation are among the topics offered. The remaining three safety content areas are more briefly developed. While the lessons are arranged sequentially, they can be used selectively. The curriculum also provides (1) approximately 60 masters that can be reproduced for classroom use; (2) 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; (3) a bibliography citing films and filmstrips, teacher preparation books and materials, curriculum and instructional materials, games and books for children, and curriculum and instructional materials; (4) a list of resource persons; and (5) learning activity and film evalution forms.
