Approximately 120 lessons for increasing sixth grade students' safety knowledge and skills as pedestrians in traffic and at school, as auto and school bus passengers, and as operators of bicycles are provided in this traffic curriculum. One third of the curriculum focuses on perceptual safety activities for young pedestrians, including lessons on visual and auditory perception and traffic laws, rules and procedures. The remainder of the curriculum consists of lesson materials concerning school bus, bicycle, auto passenger and school environment pedestrian safety. Throughout the curriculum, safety concepts and skills are taught through art, math, reading, research, science and social studies lessons. Auditory, bulletin board, and non-integrated safety activities as well as film and interview activities are included. While the lessons are arranged sequentially, they also can be used selectively. Additional features of the curriculum are (1) approximately 40 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, children's books and games; (4) a list of resource persons; and (5) learning activity and film evaluation forms.
