PDF | 2 pages | Grades: K - 2

Identify places and people in the community that provide goods and services with a cut and paste sorting worksheet.

This sorting worksheet helps students identify the people and places in the community that provide goods and services. Use it as a Labor Day classroom activity or as part of your social studies curriculum!


Practice Cutting and Sorting with Our Goods and Services Activity

This resource can be used as a center activity, with your small group, or as a full class activity to practice.

In this sorting activity, students will cut apart a series of images representing goods and services in the community. They will then sort the goods and services into the locations in which they can be purchased.

Scaffolding and Extension Tips

  • This resource can be used for individualized practice, especially if you’ve got fast finishers
  • You can also use this game to create full-class learning opportunities by projecting and completing the activity using a document camera. 
  • Invite students to use a visual reminder, like an anchor chart or an alphabet display, to sound out words they may struggle with.

Be the Writer

On a separate sheet of paper, students will put pencil to paper to write sentences that incorporate some of the examples of goods and services. This activity will allow you to assess each students’ understanding of the concept while letting them get in some creative writing practice of their own. 

Choral Response

Show a card to the students and have them tell you whether it’s a good or service using a choral response.
