Topic Mini-Research Real-World Activity
    Today the principal has asked the class to create an article for the school newspaper. Since we are learning about bicycle safety I thought it would be great to show the principal what we know. The article will show the rules we have learned about bicycle safety. We will draw pictures and label the tips for good bicycle safety.

   Steps to Complete Real-World Activity

1) Go to the website and explore the title Have A Safe Ride. Put the safety gear where you think it might go on the child. This will help you get a better understanding about bicycle safety.
2) On a piece of paper draw one tip you might need when riding a bike.
3) Label what you drew and why it might be important.
4) When you are done we will put them together, show them to the class, and turn them into the principal for the school paper.
