Rolling Into Safety Town

With the help of their physical education teachers, Minnesauke Elementary School students learned valuable safety lessons as they rolled through a mock town set up in the school’s gymnasium.

Minnesauke Safety Town is an annual tradition that enables students to learn the rules of the road as they maneuver through an obstacle course on scooters. Along the path, students are required to stop at stop signs, travel through traffic circles and observe the right of way at intersections. Throughout their travels, students are able to make stops at several local attractions and locations, including a car wash, ice skating rink and a sports activity station, and even fill up their “cars” at a gas station.
