New youth activity book promotes work zone safety
Children’s book available for download or purchase
For anyone challenged to provide their children with meaningful activity amid pandemic concerns, The ATSS Foundation has a great option.
It’s offering a 32-page child’s guide for staying safe in roadway construction zones. The activity book is geared for ages 5-8 and includes 26 safety tips – one for each letter of the alphabet.
It offers a fun way to learn the ABCs of work zone safety with lessons like, “B is for Be prepared to STOP.”
“This guide to staying safe in construction work zones is a perfect activity to get children, parents and educators involved in learning more about work zone safety,” said Lori Diaz, associate director of The Foundation. “Hopefully, starting the conversation early will lead to better-educated future drivers.”
The youth activity book is designed to teach the next generation of drivers about work zone safety.
But the book isn’t just about instruction. It offers opportunities for crafts and problem-solving. It includes a mask to cut out and assemble, a construction zone worker and outfit in paper-doll fashion, road sign challenges, a crossword puzzle, word finder game, and a maze.
The Foundation is offering this tool for students, parents and educators to discuss the importance of work zone safety. ATSSA members and chapters are encouraged to download it for their use and to partner with local schools to promote work zone safety.
The activity book is available for free via digital download or for hard copy purchase.
