Activity 3: A model street


60+ minutes (a high level of supervision is needed for this activity)


  • Art and craft materials: large sheets of coloured paper including black, cardboard boxes, glue, pencils, painting materials
  • Toy cars and figures (e.g. Lego)

A table display of a streetscape can be created using boxes for buildings, black paper for the road and toy cars. Pavements can be created and a pedestrian and zebra crossing can be added using paper and card. Lego or other toy figures can then be placed and used to demonstrate safe road crossing behaviour and show where it is unsafe: between parked cars or near the crossings, for example. If possible, the display can be adapted to match the local environment.
