Learn about Community Helpers

First Grade Social studies Activities: Learn about Community Helpers

What You Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Markers
  • Paper
  • Ruler

What You Do:

  1. On a sheet of paper, help your child make a list of the people she comes in contact with during one weekday. Walk her through the day step-by-step. Perhaps there is a police officer that helps her across a crosswalk to the bus, and a bus driver who drives her to school where her teacher will help her learn valuable skills. List each worker in order and have her explain to you what they do.
  2. Encourage her to write her name in the centre of a sheet of construction paper.
  3. Using her name as the centre point, help her draw lines extending outward, one for each worker that's on her list.
  4. Then help her write a different occupation from her list at the end of each ray using a pencil.
  5. Have her use markers to trace over the words. She can also decorate the page by drawing tools next to each occupation.
