It directly connected students to their immediate surroundings so that they establish their classroom learning to the real world. It develops the observation skills and knowledge about different buildings and their uses, vehicles, helpers and animals they see on the road. The theme is designed in such a manner that it includes activities through which students vary their body movements and speed, hence develop their gross motor skills. Safety is a very crucial aspect of social development. Therefore, this theme engages students in activities related to road safety.
