PDHPE sample units of work

The Road safety education team have worked with PDHPE to develop some sample units of learning using the essential question How can I keep myself and others safe?

There are ten lesson sequences for each stage: early stage 1 to stage 3.

STEM and road safety

The Road safety education team have been working with STEM T4L to design new resources and review units of learning using the essential question How can I keep myself and others safe?

The 360 SITU camera Kit can allow students and families to have a 360 view of their school, embedding road safety images and messages at entry and exit points.

This tool can support schools' agility when making changes due to COVID, with families not coming onto school grounds and managing staggered entry and exit of students.

See what Bronte Public School has developed for their community:

Road safety can also be found throughout many of the STEM sample units available on T4L such as:
