Tell us about how students prepared for this activity? Students looked up statistics regarding incidents between passenger vehicles & big trucks. They presented that information to their classmates. How were students involved and impacted? Students school wide attended the TN Trucking Foundation presentation and then were able to go outside and see firsthand the danger areas around the truck. They had the opportunity to sit in the cab of the big truck and see (not see) from the driver's perspective. What were the best components about this activity? The ability to physically climb up in the truck really brought to light what was said int he presentation. The students were really surprised about the space that needs to be left around the trucks as well as just how big the blind spots are around the trucks.
