A TEACHER'S GUIDE FOR THE VIDEO STOP AND LOOK WITH WILLY WHISTLE
"Stop and Look with Willy Whistle" is a video about pedestrian safety for young children from kindergarten through third grade. However, the information presented is universal and valid for all ages because it addresses accident situations in which we can all become involved. Its spokesperson, a whistle named Willy Whistle, is a lively animated character chosen as an attention getting device that children will naturally associate with the traffic environment. The video teaches the most critical behaviors needed by young pedestrians to avoid pedestrian accidents in which they dart into the street without stopping or looking. This teacher's guide describes children as pedestrians, presents a teaching strategy to reach the children, as well as sample discussion questions and activities that can be used in the classroom.
