Lesson 14: We Can Play Safely on the Playground


This lesson helps students understand playground safety rules. Students list things they enjoy doing during play time and think about ways they might be hurt on the playground. They brainstorm a list of safety rules to follow when they are on the playground. Then practice applying the rules by giving a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to actions described in various scenarios and explaining how following the safety rules would correct the situations that are unsafe. They finish the lesson by completing an activity sheet that allows them to apply the rules they learned.
