Road Safety Single file actions game

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Based on "Captain's coming" game, but uses commands related to road safety




Beavers find a space.
Instructions are shouted as follows:
"Single file" - all get in a line, one behind the other
"Hold hands" - with nearest person
"Face the traffic" - turn the other way
"Use the pavement" - go to the side of the hall
"Stop, look & listen" - stand still, quietly, looking all around
"Walk across" - walk quickly as if crossing a road, looking all around
"Car coming" - sit & pretend to drive
"Motorbike coming" - pretend to ride a bike
"Lorry coming" - stand & hold a big steering wheel
Finish game by reminding them why it is important to walk single file on narrow country lanes & why they should face the traffic where there is no pavement (stress they should always use a pavement when there is one).
