Are there any classroom-based resources that teach children how to walk and bike to school safely?

The National Center for Safe Routes to School maintains a walking and bicycling safety curricula page on its walkbiketoschool.org website. The ability to walk and bicycle safely is an important life skill. Any program that encourages walking and bicycling should also incorporate safety education.  In order for children to adopt new skills, they need supervised practice time and repeated reinforcement of the key messages. Visit http://www.walkbiketoschool.org/keep-going/ongoing-activities/classroom-curricula to browse the various curricula that address walking and bicycling safety and select one or a few that suit your needs.
