This is a social studies lesson for kindergarten and first grade on community helpers. Through this lesson students will learn about what a community helper is, important community helpers in the community they live in, and what each community helper wears as a uniform and performs as their job. Students will also develop listening, reading, and decoding skills as well as experience with comparing and contrasting. The lesson is tiered in three levels based on ability. Within each tier the student will complete a shape contract where they choose tasks based on interest and ability.
