New Child Passenger Safety Module Added to Our Free Lesson Plan
Keeping Your Kids Safe in the Car
To coincide with Child Passenger Safety Week (September 15-21, 2019) we’re excited to announce our latest topic on Car Passenger Safety is now outlined in our new School Safety Lesson Plan. This is a great time for parents and caregivers to have their car seats inspected, and to talk to students about the importance of staying safe while riding in a car.
In this lesson, students will learn how to:
- Stay safe while riding in a car.
- Identify child safety seats for older children.
- Determine the safety seat that’s right for them.
This informative Lesson Plan includes a 5-Step Test to help determine if a child should remain in a booster seat or transition to a seat belt. The activity, which can be completed by a student with the help of an adult, highlights the importance of sitting in a booster seat and riding in the backseat of a car. In this Lesson Plan, you will also find information about seat belts and how to wear them safely.
To make these resources even more accessible to students across our community, every download of the Lesson Plan now comes with a fully translated Spanish version. In addition, if requested on our website, you will also be sent a free gift with resources to assist in teaching the Lesson Plan.
AAA encourages teachers, parents and caregivers to download the updated School Safety Lesson Plan to start instilling safety and leadership values in students today.
