My Primary 2 Lesson 31 handout packet includes

  • 4 Street Signs- Use these as you talk about different laws. You can even have your class hold up certain signs as they answer questions. Or use them for a quick game. Write different Speed Limit Signs (Crawl like a Turtle, Walk like a Penguin, etc) and use them for a variation of Simon Says. 
  • 2 big blank signs. You can write your class rules on these signs or some rules the children have at home. Put them up on the whiteboard or take turns holding it out like a police officer.
