The Georgia SRTS Resource Center has just released a "how to" video on using the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) Child Pedestrian Safety Education curriculum.  Released earlier in 2011, the curriculum provides five lessons for children in kindergarten through fifth grade tailored by three age groups. 

The Resource Center's "how to" video provides inforamtion about the curriculum and includes example pages of:

  • the five lessons;
  • how the curriculum is adapted for different age groups;
  • what resources are available for teachers; and
  • take home materials for parents.

The video and other child safety resources are available on the Resoruce Center website Program Toolkit under Safety Education Resources.

The video is a follow-up to six workshops Resource Center conducted during October and November 2011, training 100 Georgia educators on the NHTSA curriculum.
