What do Good Citizens Do?
Now, more than ever, our students need good models and direct instruction on social interactions and how to be good citizens. We’ve been busy building up our resource library with the tools and resources you need to grow your learning community.
Start the school year off on the right foot with your students as they learn how to be good citizens. This activity will help you introduce the concept of community and how students can act as good citizens in their own homes, school, and neighborhoods.
This sorting activity is a great way to teach and reinforce the characteristics of good citizenship. Students will practice recognizing acts of good citizenship, determine where each act occurred, and sort the cards accordingly. Answer key included!
