This activity allows students to gather information about how many
children in their class ride in a booster and who still should.
Have the students do a survey to determine who rides in a booster
seat, seat belt or nothing at all. Have the students graph their
answers. Next, gather a scale and a tape measurer and chart heights
and weights of all the students. All of the students who are under 4’
9” tall AND 80 pounds should still be in a booster. Those children
who are over the height AND weight limit should fit properly in a
seat belt. Graph your findings.
How many students are still riding in a booster?
How many are riding in a seat belt?
How many are riding in nothing at all?
How many students think they are too big for a booster?
Send the booster seat activity home for the students to do with
their parents and ask the students to return the sheet the next day.
Compare the answers from the quiz to the number of students who do
not think they need a booster. What are your findings?
