In this lesson, student teams present their safety campaigns to the class. They review the steps to being a safety ambassador: choosing to be safe, thinking ahead and helping others. During the presentations, students complete an activity sheet to personalize the learning by listing the safety rule for each topic that is most important for them to follow. They receive certificates to celebrate their role of helping others be safe.
