Project Ride Smart

at Natomas Park Elementary. There are four 5th-grade classes. Pollyanna and I teach two classes per day between 11 am – 2 pm – great schedule – and we’ll be here all of October.There are 3 classroom sessions where students learn the rules of the road, right-of-way rules, all hand signals, and lots more. They watch short video segments then recap what they’ve learned with prompts from the instructors.Outside, we teach about brain function and the importance of wearing a helmet. One watermelon wearing a helmet is dropped with not a scratch (usually), the other watermelon doesn’t wear a helmet and cracks open when dropped – with much ooh-ing and ahh-ing. Pollyanna, is about to say, “No! Don’t pry open the watermelon.”
