Our Community Helpers lesson plan introduces community helpers to students and includes information for students to become involved in their community as a volunteer or helper. Students are asked to identify what different kinds of community helpers (mail carriers, farmers, etc.) do and are asked to reflect on why they are important in a community. They are also asked to reflect on the tools or supplies that each kind of helper needs to do their jobs successfully.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify community helpers and describe their roles and duties in a community.
