Help Young People Stay Safe on the Roads

Sunday 7th November 2010

As young people begin to mature and become more independent, they are exposed to increasing risks. Teenagers are an important group of road users as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and newly-qualified drivers. Many are unaware that road incidents are the biggest cause of accidental deaths and serious injuries amongst young people.

There is a need for all those involved with young people to help teach clear road safety messages to equip them to understand and manage the risks they encounter as road users.

The Think! Education web site from the Department for Transport contains teacher resources and classroom activities covering the transition from primary to secondary school as well as activities for Key Stage 3 and 4 students. There is also an area with useful information for parents.

Detailed lesson ideas, specifically designed to support the secondary school national curriculum for England, are provided in three subject areas: PSHE and Citizenship; Science; English and Drama. The Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 resource banks include links to interactive activities and PDF activity sheets supporting the lesson plans for you to download and print. Each activity can be used independently and will work well in single tutor group sessions or as a series.

All resources include teacher notes and student worksheets when necessary. They use engaging online interactive tasks and thought-provoking media such as video where appropriate.
