Teaching resources available

Curriculum resources for BikeReady are written by Pam Hook.

These include lesson plans to support students taking part in Grade 1 skills training. Everything is clearly aligned to New Zealand Curriculum achievement objectives, with sufficient flexibility for teachers to create learning experiences for the curriculum level at which their students are working.

The resources cover:

  • activating prior knowledge
  • demonstrating skills and knowledge for safe riding
  • inquiry into challenges and opportunities for bike riding in the local community

"This series of learning activities allows students to solve problems, discuss and experiment. They can create resources to develop a deep understanding of the causes and consequences of safe riding, as well as risk management strategies to keep safe." 
Pam Hook, education specialist
