Safety is a big concern of all parents. It is important to teach kids traffic rules and let them recognize traffic signs. Traffic rules include traffic lights, traffic signs and pavement markings. Traffic signs are erected at the side of or above roads to give instructions or provide information to road users. Different colors and shapes of the traffic signs provide different information.
Waring road signs are usually diamond shaped, with fluorescent yellow-green background. Warning signs alert road users to special road hazards. Words or pictures on the signs will show road users why they need to slow down or use extra caution. Yellow is the best colour to signify warning due to its high visibility. Yellow signs can be seen well from afar and even from fast-moving vehicles, giving road users time to avoid the hazard.
This worksheet provides several warning road signs. They are traffic signals ahead, pedestrian crossing, school-bus stop ahead, cross roads ahead, left curve ahead, left turn ahead, bicycles crossing, deer crossing, steep hill ahead, low clearance ahead, two-way traffic, and slippery road. Besides safety education, this worksheet also provides a good way of introducing colors and shapes to toddlers.
