Using pedestrian lights

Print the 'Pedestrian Lights' student worksheet to be completed after this activity.

Always look for a safe place to cross the road. Pedestrian lights are there to keep you safe.

Look at the road Toby is about to cross with his mum. Someone will need to press the button to stop the traffic.

Good work!

You have pressed the button to stop the traffic

Now you must wait for the traffic to stop and for the man to turn green.

Never cross when the man is red

Now the man has turned green.....Is it safe to cross yet?

Only cross if the man is green AND all of the traffic has stopped.

When you see the red man flashing, DO NOT start to cross the road.

If you have already started to cross, walk quickly to finish crossing.

Well done!

Remember...

  1. Always hold an adult's hand
  2. Wait for the red man to turn green, and
  3. Stop, look, listen and think before you cross the road.

Good Work!

Always look out for cars, trucks and bikes before you cross the road.

Can you think of any other things you need to look out for before you cross the road?

Wait! It's still not safe to cross the road.

Now we are going to listen with our ears.

What can you hear that tells us this is not a safe place to cross the road?
