Safely back to school
Here's a great federal government site with national links to lots of safety information. See School Safety, Teachers and Kids for the most relevant material. Topics include: Chat/News Groups, Emergency Preparedness at School, Injury Prevention and much more.
School Bus Site
Simple, colourful animation makes the Ontario Safety League web site a good one for young children. Elementary-school student Sam walks kids through safely boarding, riding and dismounting the bus.
UK-based Childnet International offers award-winning web sites like Blog Safety, Chat Danger and Know It All, where you'll find numerous teacher resources, strangely enough, under Know It All for Parents. This section includes Flash videos and cartoons and real people introducing you to applicable resources.
cyberbullying.org gives a basic introduction to bash boards and other media. Related Resources offers lesson plans plus a glossary of web/instant messaging terms and links to other cyberbullying sites. Some important links on the site don't work.
stopcyberbullying.org offers age-specific information. Choose the blue apple for teacher materials.
Canada Safety Council
Easy to navigate, this site includes playground safety, field trips, water safety, scooters, skates and bicycles, sports and sun safety.
Food Allergy Initiative
The New-York-based Food Allergy Initiative offers a good introduction to food allergies. Skip directly to Food Allergy Information and Living with Food Allergies at the top of each page. I like the by-allergy, image-based navigation beneath the top navigation. You'll also find downloadable posters and a comprehensive links page on the site.
