The activities below are included in our
short unit on safety each year. We include information about
playground safety, traffic safety, bus safety, etc.
This project was done with a 6 x 12 piece
of black paper, and 4 inch squares of red, yellow and green construction
paper. The corners were cut and the points rounded to make circles.
We sing the following song when we make Traffic Light:
Red on top
And green below,
Red Means stop,
Green means go,
Yellow means wait.....
Even if you're late!

The traffic signal is made on 6x12 piece of
black construction paper. The circles are cut using a 3 1/2 inch
square. The children cut the corners of each square and then cut the
points to make the circle. This is a skill that they can use
to make lots of different things during the year. The children get
better and better with practice!
This is a copy of the policeman
that we make some years. He is holding a small copy of the poem that
is listed above.
