Lesson Plan Title : Bike Safety
Age Range: Grade 3 through Grade 5 (Elementary)
Overview and Purpose: In this lesson, students plan an obstacle course where people can practice bike safety rules.
Objective: The student will be able to plan an obstacle course that allows others to practice bike safety rules.
Large piece of drawing paper for each group
Items that can be used as road blocks, houses, people, etc.
Have students work in groups to develop a list of bike safety rules and then an obstacle course that tests those rules. The rules can include riding with the traffic, walking your bike across the street, and wearing a helmet.
When students have completed their courses, have each group share their's with the class.
If space permits, you can set up a bike safety course for the students in the gym or on the playground. Have them walk through it instead of riding a bike. Include a worksheet and when they get to an obstacle, have them write on the worksheet what they would do.
