  1. Review with learners the importance of crosswalk safety.  "Why should we cross at a crosswalk? What could happened if we don't make eye contact with a driver?  Why should we walk across the end of a street and not between parked cars?  What could happen if we run or skip across the street?"
  2. Allow learners to work as a group and set up a community for independent play.
  3. After the allotted time, learners clean up.

Extension:
