Community Helpers Activities for Kindergarten and 1st Grade
With the influx of digital tools into primary grades, teachers need high-quality resources for their students to use in the classroom. Our goal is to create real teacher tools that can be implemented easily, even with primary-aged learners.
Not only is technology great for literacy and math, but it also boosts engagement in Social Studies. We’ve created a Google Slides interactive activity to help you teach your kindergarten and first graders all about Community Helpers!
This resource engages your students in identifying and sorting community helpers and the tools they use in different locations around the community. They will uncover these economic concepts in a school, hospital, grocery store, and more! Students will use a drag and drop interface to complete the activity.
