Walking and cycling are key ways to travel sustainably while keeping active and fit. It’s important that children and their families are encouraged to walk and cycle whenever they can, rather than travel by car. However, it’s essential that children understand how to be safe as both a pedestrian and cyclist.

In this lesson, students research an organisation that promotes safe walking or cycling and discuss the strategies that the organisation uses.
