Streetfilms: First Graders Show Us How to Share the Road
How’s this for understanding modal harmony?
Livable Streets Education has been working with New York City students, encouraging them to explore and question the environments around their schools and in their neighborhoods — and to voice the changes they want to see on their streets. We recently asked first graders at P.S. 87 to give advice to pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers, and to illustrate their words of wisdom. Here’s a montage of their wonderfully perceptive responses (and if you’re a fan of kids’ drawings, don’t forget the companion piece from kindergartners).
If you would like to get your school involved, please contact Kim Wiley-Schwartz at 212-796-4211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
