Road safety is very important. When you are a passenger in a car there are rules that needs to be obeyed. Some important rules are to fasten your seatbelt and to keep the noise level down, to not distract the driver.
We need to know road signs and hand signals when driving a vehicle, truck or bicycle.
These are some signs we see on our way to school. Can you help me identify them?
This white lines is painted on the road in front of each school. We call this a pedestrian. Cars need to stop when there is people walking across the road on this sign.
Before you cross a street always look RIGHT, LEFT and RIGHT again.
Each school also have learners to look after our safety before and after school, known as the scholar patrol. They see to it that vehicles stop to give learners a chance to cross the road.
We push the button on the robot to give us a chance to cross the road safely. We can only cross the road when this man is presented in a green light
Play on the sidewalk of the road. It is saver and cars would be able to see you.
Traffic officers see to it that people obey the rules of the road to make it safe for us. They help us to pass the main roads where there are no nearby scholar patrol.
When crossing a road always hold an older persons hand. They will ensure that you cross the road safely.
Your parents are not allowed to talk or text a message while driving a car.

Analysis What do you think can happen when the driver is talking on his phone while driving? Synthesis What might happen to the girls if they do not play on the sidewalk? Evaluation What was the most important road safety rule for you? Why do you say so? Can you think of another road safety rule?
Implementation This Power Point can be used at the beginning of your lesson on road safety First introduce this story to your learners as it will lay a good background of road safety This story will ensure that you cover most of the road signs and road safety concepts but stills give children the opportunity to give their own input After you implemented the story you can then give learners a worksheet on road safety You can divide your learners in to groups and they can have role- plays on the ideal and then not ideal road safety of people You can ask a traffic officer to come and talk to your learners
