Drivers Ed: TEXT WARS GAME

Perfect for Driver’s Ed Activity, Class activities, Awareness rally’s, parents, and homeschoolers

Teenage drivers feel invincible. Many teens feel they can answer or send a quick text message with speed, skill and accuracy while staying safe behind the wheel.

The tragic reality is that even taking their eyes off the road for 1 second has cost too many kids their lives.

Teach the dangers of texting and driving to teens with this hands on game and group activity.

Game Play: 2 hours or spread out over two sessions

Materials needed:

~This Activity Pack (printables prepared in advance)

~Stopwatch

~Pencils

~Cell Phones

~Teens who love to text

~Measuring tape

Drivers Ed: TEXT WARS GAME: Phase one- 30 Minutes

Drivers Ed: TEXT WARS GAME: Phase two- 30 Minutes

Drivers Ed: TEXT WARS GAME: Phase Three- 60 minutes

This game is fast, fun and shocking. It helps deliver the message that any texting is too costly.

It is quite a rude awakening. Our kids need to understand the dangers of texting and driving, and this game helps do that without endangering their lives.

This game includes:

  • Directions for all phases
  • Texting task cards
  • Scoring sheets
  • Road hazard cards
  • Driving contract
  • No TEXT Zone Promise Coupons

There are three phases to this game. The secret sauce is in getting kids to text and time themselves.

Phase 1: kids are placed in teams. They are timed as they type specific messages. Object: Kids text without thinking about driving, just how fast they can do it.

Phase 2: Kids calculate how far they would travel for each second of travel at two different speeds. Sobering objective- How far would your car have rolled while you completed each text in phase 1.

Phase 3: Reality check

Kids take those distances out to the football field and take turns walking blindfolded for the time of their text messages. They have cards to turn over to see what the consequences of their time "texting and driving" were this time.

Phase 1-2 can be completed in one class period.

Phase 3 should be an entire class so you have time for discussion.
