The Safe Journeys programis supported by teacher lesson plans (aka Teacher Road Map), including pre- and post-visit learning activities, teaching tips, additional resource links, curriculum outcomes and extension ideas.

The Safe Journeys programoffers 10 lesson plans that can be adapted to fit your teaching schedule. NB. If you are intending to undertake the Road to Zero excursion, we highly recommend completing all the activities to optimise students’ understanding and learning outcomes.

1. Pre-visit

Activities 1-3 are undertaken at school with a class teacher. The intention is for students to:

  • gain an understanding of the resources and transport options available to them.
  • develop road safety knowledge and journey planning skills.

2. Visit (excursion with free entry) to Road to Zero at Melbourne Museum

Activities 4 and 5 take place at the Road to Zero Education Complex at Melbourne Museum where a trained facilitator will guide students through hands-on learning experiences where they will:

  • deepen their understanding of the road safety concepts of Safer Roads, Safer Speeds, Safer Vehicles and Safer People.

3. Post-visit

Activities 6–10 are follow-up lessons to complete at school with the class teacher to reinforce student learning and encourage ‘next step’ action based on the understanding gained. Students will:

  • demonstrate the ability to independently plan safe trips using the road/transport network
  • reflect on their understanding of road safety and make a commitment to playing their part to reduce road trauma.
