11 – Crossing
You have found the 11th location of the Scavenger Hunt! Grown-ups – kids learn by observation. Let’s practice the SEP method (please see the brochure you received). SHOW: Show your child how to look both ways for cars and how to listen for traffic. EXPLAIN: Have a short discussion about why you look both ways and listen for cars. Ask questions and listen to your child to see if they understand. PRACTICE: Now, holding hands, practice looking both ways, listening, and then crossing together. If a car approaches, practice waiting in a safe spot and making eye contact with the driver. As you practice the SEP method with your child, they will build healthy and safe habits which will last a lifetime.
