On the morning of Monday, October 24th, students from Class 3F visited the Belleville Children’s Safety Village to learn and practice how to be safe around sidewalks, intersections, and moving vehicles.
During our visit, we reviewed our understanding of sidewalk safety, road crossings, and being safe around school buses and traffic. We reminded ourselves to walk in the middle of the sidewalk, to take a giant step back from the curb, and to “Stop, Look, and Listen” when getting ready to cross the road.
All of the students had an opportunity to practice at being both a pedestrian and a driver in the safety of the scale village. We had a great time driving the Jeeps on the right side of the road, practicing our turns, and stopping for the various signs and signal lights.
During our visit, students created two mock emergencies. In one instance, a student “fell off a roof,” and in the other, “a train accident injured six students.” We practiced calling 9-1-1, and provided the necessary information to the 9-1-1 operator.
We all had fun at the safety village and learned about being safe around traffic and moving vehicles. Thanks to Officer Dan for letting us visit!
