  • 1.

    Will you ride a bus to school? Or take one on a field trip? No other vehicle looks quite like a school bus! Find pictures of school buses in books. Watch them drive on the street. Why do you think buses are painted bright yellow?

  • 2.

    A good way to remember your school bus is to draw it. What shapes make your bus? Start with bus wheels--they're circles! The bus is a rectangle. Can you find squares? Other shapes?

    With Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, draw the shapes you see. Put them together to "build" your own school bus. If you change your mind, erase parts of your drawing and start again.

  • 4.

    Color in the parts of the bus---the windows, tires, signs, even your friends peering out to watch you get on! Blend colors with the eraser, such as tire smudges or window reflections. Ride safely!
