School material (in German only)

The school material offers teachers long-term support with their projects on traffic education. Our support, which you can use to prepare all your teaching, encompasses six topic-based modules such as ‘Seeing’, ‘Cycling’ and ‘Being a road user’. The material was created in collaboration with the University of Koblenz-Landau and offers teachers an add-on to their regular traffic education. We provide information, exercises and assignments on a wide array of topics like sustainability, road signs and public transport. The topics are bundled together in six modules, with their content tailored to children’s ability in the school years in question.

Module 1: How do I distinguish important from unimportant stimuli?
Module 2: Crossing the road
Module 3: Riding a bicycle
Module 4: Sharing the road with others
Module 5: Safe on the way to school
Module 6: Mobility of the future
Full package: All six modules

Learning units

We want to help teachers educate children about traffic. Our learning units let you integrate the topic of road safety into your lessons with greater ease. Our four compact modules lay the groundwork for shaping a teaching unit on topics such as cycling or getting to school. The units contain guidelines for teaching, instructions for Q&As and practical exercises and games. We focus on feasibility when developing the practical elements. The exercises are easy to carry out within the school environment and include children’s experiences from day-to-day life. The guiding motto for every learning unit is: Learning road safety is important and should be fun.
