Theme-based lesson plans: COMMUNITY HELPERS

Sunday, October 1, 2023

Around the theme of community helpers children will deepen their understanding of the various remarkable individuals who contribute to our community.

These activities are designed to promote engagement, critical thinking, and
knowledge retention among the children. Connecting learning to real-life contexts
aims to foster a sense of appreciation and respect for the community helpers who
play vital roles in our everyday lives.

Community helpers are for example: firefighters, lawyers, doctors, mail carriers, nurses, librarians, pilots, bakers, dentists, police officers, construction workers, bus drivers, volunteers, farmers, and teachers.
