Vince and Larry’s Safety City
Posted By On November 9, 2004 @ 11:24 AM In Cool Sites | Comments Disabled
Welcome to Safety City, one of coolest places around to teach your kids and refresh your own memory, about what’s safe. You can start your visit by scrolling down the page and taking Vince and Larry’s Safety Challenge. The challenge is 20 questions about vehicle safety (vehicles being bikes, buses, and cars). It’s a quick quiz that took me about a minute to fill out and I got 18 of the 20 answers correct. When you’re finished, if you scored high enough, you can put your name in the hall of fame or take it again to get 20 out of 20, it tells you the correct answers to the ones you missed.
There is a lot to do here so don’t feel bad if you get lost in this site. I started at the top and worked my way across then did the row below and so on and so forth. After taking the quiz I headed to Bike City. There you will learn everything you ever needed to know about how to be safe when riding your bike from City Biking to Equipment Checking. Very valuable knowledge to have if you are a biker.
Next is the Art Gallery which is, you guessed it, full of art. Here you can see the permanent collection of art, you can color some pictures in the Cyber Studio and e-mail them to Vince and Larry if you’d like.
If you head to Safety School you’ll find a link to the quiz I mentioned earlier as well as a section for teachers called the Teacher’s Lounge where you can find tons of stuff to download for your students to do to learn about safety.
This a fabulous site, especially if you need an activity to do with your kids, or even your grandkids. Enjoy!
