Activity 1: Cross safely


10-15 minutes


  • A digital projector and screen connected to the internet for the Cross safely interactive Flash game

This is another slideshow story, but with interactive elements. It is called Cross safely. There is a question on each page and children must decide which one of two answers is right. Feedback is given each time to say why the answer was right or wrong. Teachers should discuss with children what the consequences of unsafe actions could be when crossing the road.

In the story Az is going shopping along a busy street with his mum. They need to cross and so look for a safer place. They stop at a bus stop and near a bend before finding a pedestrian crossing which Az is taught to use properly.
