Celebrating Transportation Week
Outreach to Schools
In early April, UGPTI will send out transportation-related information and activities that can be incorporated into classroom learning to schools across North Dakota.
A packet targeted at 5th graders will focus on building awareness of the importance of transportation and will include a transportation activity sheet.
A second packet aimed at 7th and 8th graders will include a state map and a science Olympiad-styled quiz sheet that is intended to build geography and map-reading skills. That packet will also include information on transportation careers.
Classes that complete the activities at either grade level, send photos of class members involved with transportation in some way, or that complete a transportation creation can be entered into a contest at each grade level to win a $100 gift card. In addition, a selected winning class and families will be invited to attend the UGPTI banquet in October.
