The WalkSafe Curriculum aims to improve pedestrian safety and promote student
wellness through walking.
This 3-day curriculum is divided into one day each for homeroom, P.E., and art teachers. Each section of the curriculum contains lessons and activities that teach pedestrian safety skills through the use of videos, simulation activities, and art projects.
Supplementary to the 3-day lesson plan, reproducible materials are included as a way to incorporate pedestrian safety and health concepts into your academic curriculum.
Participating schools are requested to submit a curriculum completion form (CCF) upon completion of the entire 3-day curriculum.
