      Read the teacher notes first for instructions and suggested learning pathways. You can then choose to teach all 3 lessons or select a few which suit your students best.

  • Lesson plan
  • Lesson 1: Getting familiar with train environments

      Students brainstorm concepts to prepare for a visit to the train station by creating a mind map. The class then visits a nearby train station platform, pedestrian level crossing or train tracks on an excursion. An alternative option for a simulated excursion using a video resource is also provided. Students practise safe walking, and observe and listen for things that help keep them safe.

  • Lesson 2: Keeping ourselves safe

      Students think about and discuss the STOP LOOK LISTEN THINK procedure, or play an outdoor game to practise the actions. They then identify the people who can help keep them safe and protective behaviours they should do near the train tracks, through drawing, writing, mapping; or role playing what adults could do to keep their little brothers safe.

  • Lesson 3: Teaching others to be TrackSAFE

      Students create a class frieze of a pedestrian level crossing and train station including the safety features. They then identify actions that promote health, safety and wellbeing by creating a rail safety message. Finally, they create an interesting way of communicating their safety message to the school community, such as an assembly presentation, visual display, class blog post, picture book for pre-schoolers, or e-book.
