Minnesota Walk! Bike! Fun! curriculum

The new Minnesota Walk! Bike! Fun! Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Curriculum (PDF, 7 MB) is a two-part curriculum designed specifically for Minnesota’s schools and is structured to meet Minnesota education standards. It helps children ages five to thirteen learn traffic rules and regulations, the potential hazards to traveling, and handling skills needed to bike and walk effectively, appropriately and safely through their community.
