Try this helpful resource for students to learn the meanings of signs they see in the community and on the street. There are 21 safety/traffic/community signs, each with two symbols to choose from to represent the correct action or meaning. I work with a number of middle and high school students who are learning to recognize and understand safety and traffic signs.
Use this powerpoint while teaching community. Discuss why schools have rules, and give examples of neighborhood rules (e.g., respecting private property, and obeying traffic signs and signals). Discuss the traffic signs and their meaning. We play traffic sign bingo, make our own sign using construction paper
