Aims and objectives
The online crossword is a fun way to introduce children to road
safety issues, in particular those relating to cycling.
No real previous knowledge is required although familiarity with
the Green Cross Code and basic road safety would be useful.
In the classroom
The crossword can be played online by solving a clue, clicking on
the scratchpad icon and typing the letters into the space provided.
(The notepad can be moved out of the way by dragging and dropping.)
Answers are then checked and inserted into the crossword by clicking
on the 'check' button. Full instructions are given at the start
of the activity.
Although this resource is intended for single users or small groups
working collaboratively, the activity can be used with larger groups
of children with an interactive whiteboard. This approach will allow
teachers to use the crossword clues to stimulate class discussion
to identify the answers before selecting children to enter the words.
