Road SMARTS 4 kids

Resources for kids!

Our RoadSMARTS 4 Kids page offers all kinds of resources, activities, challenges, downloadable lesson plans and videos that make learning important road safety concepts, skills and awareness fun and engaging for kids.

We are never too young to start learning about road safety. Thinking about our children walking and cycling independently can be daunting and worrisome but it doesn’t have to be! Parents, teachers and adults have a responsibility to ensure our kids are prepared and empowered to keep themselves safe on our roads. By actively engaging and talking to children about road safety we can ensure we raise responsible, aware and safer road users.

Virtual WALKSAFE Resources (JK – Grade 6)

In lieu of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have modified our Walksafe content that would have been traditionally delivered to students by an OSC presenter and packaged it as downloadable lesson plans aligned with Ministry of Education curriculum requirements, resources, activity sheets and videos that teachers can deliver in their classrooms until such time as we can resume in-class presentations. 

Virtual CYCLESAFE Resources

In lieu of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have modified our newly revamped Cyclsafe content that would have been traditionally delivered to students at an OSC Bike Rodeo and packaged it as downloadable lesson plans aligned with Ministry of Education curriculum requirements, resources, activity sheets and videos that teachers can deliver in their classrooms until such time as we can resume in-class presentations.
