Year after year, around 20% of the victims of fatal car crashes are under 15. Although motorists need to exercise caution and it's ultimately their responsibility to be safe drivers, children also need to know how to handle themselves safely around vehicular traffic. That's why, as a public service, we compiled this lesson plan about basic traffic signs, consistent with Common Core Social Studies standard K.5a.
Signs are all around us when we're indoors, too, but kids don't know what they mean if we don't tell them! We've also compiled this lesson plan on indoor signs like EXIT and FIRE ALARM, also consistent with CCSS Social Studies K.5a.
