Walking for Health Skills and Safety

Safe Routes Berks presents:
A one-day professional development experience for K-8
Health and PE Educators
Safe Routes Berks is a new program that introduces walking and cycling as fun, healthy, and environmentally friendly activities for children ages 5-13.  This professional development training is comprised of a 6 hour tutorial on pedestrian skills and safety lessons – including getting on and off of a school bus safely. Berks County teachers, public or private, who complete the training receive full access to the online resources and print materials, including teacher’s guide, activity books for students, and educational videos.  Teachers will be given creative lessons and activities to fill existing curriculum -- as everything provided is aligned to state standards both for PE/health related lessons, and cross-curricular lessons.  In addition to walking for health skills and safety lessons, teachers will be provided materials for their students to learn to view their feet as good means of recreation, exercise and transportation.
