Road Sign Worksheets

Core Standard

Traffic signs are placed on specific portions of the roadways to provide drivers and pedestrians of important information to warn them of any type of potential danger or adjustments that they need to make for sake of safety. This helps maintain a sense of order and keep people safe. Road signs commonly rely on the use of symbols or drawing instead of words. This provides both the community with an instant form of communication that they can understand in seconds. This is not only faster, but it allows the message to overcome any language barriers. The color of the sign itself is an indicator as to the intent of the message. These messages follow the patterns of traffic lights where red means stop or exhibit extreme caution, yellow is used for warnings, and green describes moving flows or patterns. These worksheets will help students become familiar with the messages and communications that are intended with specific road signs and the symbols and colors that they offer.
