Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Lesson Plans

Lessons presented here are a sampling of youth-focused bicycle and pedestrian curriculum currently in use throughout the United States. These lessons are simple, straightforward, and adaptable to different learning styles, audiences, and physical settings. Importance was placed on being able to deliver the lessons in a one-day, single class period format, and all lessons attempt to encourage a deeper inclusion of many learning styles and student differences.

Selection criteria included: minimal logistics, adaptability for special education student participation and facilitation, consideration of space or resource limitation, grade-appropriate reading level text and clarity of written materials, multi-sensory access to learning styles, and simple instructions for delivery.

Many of the activities from the following lesson plans have been adapted from other sources noted on the bottom of the lesson plans.
