Community Helpers Lesson

Community Helpers Lesson

How can group juggling teach students the importance of community? This lesson provides a fun and effective way to teach students in grades 1-2 about how every individual plays a crucial role in their community. Starting with a game of “Team Juggling,” this lesson will also guide you and your class through staging a drama focusing on community helpers, or individuals who play an important role outside of official leadership positions. Students may practice their collaboration, concentration, and planning and practicing skills in this activity, as well as integrating social sciences learning through discussing crucial community helper roles. We have also included step-by-step delivery instructions to help you guide your students through this lesson.
