Think! Education

Activity 1: Introducing the theme

This theme can be introduced through the following story, to be read aloud. There are three illustrations to accompany this story.

After the story, talk about what can be learned from it and ask questions:

  • Where did Bansi go with her auntie? Why did Bansi think the city was big and noisy and strange? How did Bansi cross the road the first time? How did Bansi cross the road the second time? Why did Bansi’s father say she was a good teacher? What were the three things that Bansi remembered to always do when crossing the road (stop, look and listen).
  • Show the three illustrations accompany the story and talk about pedestrian and zebra crossings. Ask the children why it’s important to hold hands. When do we not need to hold hands? Why do we always need to stop, look and listen?
  • Emphasise that the children should never try to cross a road on their own
