Bike Safety Lesson Plans and Activities

Preschool and Kindergarten Lesson Plans and Activities on Bike Safety

The book I Can Ride a Bike by Edana Eckart could be used to introduce bike safety. Although it doesn't specifically introduce bike safety, it could be incorporated with reading the book. The book discusses different parts of a bike.

Reading Follow-up Activity
A predictable text could be printed on sentence strips or chart paper with things the children can do. Example:
I can sing.
I can count.
I can play soccer.

Math Follow-up Activity
Children pretend to be pedaling their bike (moving their legs in circles. Count the number of pedals they can do).

The most effective way to have introduce bicycle safety is to have a Bike Rodeo. The link below is a wonderful resource in helping you organize a bicycle rodeo.
