Traffic safety workshops for 7th/8th grade

  • Posted on: 3 March 2020
  • By: Merle Schroer

With the help of real accident statistics from the school environment, students analyse accidents which happened on their daily route to school. The workshop aims to raise awareness to the fact that many car drivers or lorry drivers are not very much aware of cyclists or pedestrians. A special focus was on the danger to other road users when a truck is turning off at an intersection. After a practical element, when the students observed an intersection for about 15 minutes and listed the observed misbehaviour, they talked about what they saw in calss and put in perspective.

To support third-graders passing their bicycle safety test in the 4th grade, they can improve their cycling skills with the help of workshops. The workshops are designed to address difficulties and deficits timely so that children still have plenty of time to practice their skills before the bicycle safety test. The workshops cover the following topics:

 

Safety:

  • Bicycle safety check: breaks, light etc.
