Teach Teenage driver the dangers of texting and driving with this hands on game and group activity
Game Play: 2 hours or spread out over two sessions
Drivers Ed: TEXT WARS GAME: Phase one- 30 Minutes
have head to head battles to determine the fasted texter in the group
Using “text This” Task cards, students go head to head to determine who is the faster texter.
The goal of this phase is for teens to let their guard down and simply exercise their texting ability.
Each player is timed while texting until all players have at least 4 text times recorded.
Drivers Ed: TEXT WARS GAME: Phase two- 30 Minutes
Drivers Ed: TEXT WARS GAME: But what if you were driving? How far would you have traveled without looking at the road?
Each player follows directions to convert their texting times into road distances for both 30 and 60 MPH driving speeds. The fact that you travel a very significant distance is quite a shock at first.
Drivers Ed: TEXT WARS GAME: Phase Three- 60 minutes
Drivers Ed: TEXT WARS GAME: How far is that in real life? Could anything bad have happened?
Taking the phase two sheets outside the consequences of texting and driving become very real.
Students will measure their longest texting time/distances and then roll the dice.
They then have to walk the distance blindfolded. When they reach the finish-line, then ge to reveal their road hazard (determined by the roll of the dice). This is quite a rude awakening.
