Resources for 5-6

Road Safety Curriculum Resource

As children and young people progress through developmental phases of learning, the ability to safely interact with the traffic environment relies on the learning and reinforcement of age appropriate content and skills throughout these phases.

The WA Challenges and Choices curriculum resources focus on the content and skills appropriate for Kindergarten to Year 10 students.

Road safety issues such as passenger, pedestrian and riding safety are covered through a range of interactive activities. The activities, which focus on skill development in areas such as decision-making, problem-predicting and problem-solving, will give young people the ability to make safer decisions in and around traffic.

Challenges and Choices can be downloaded for the specific year group: Year 5 or Year 6
