Looking for something new to add to your lessons? These tri-folds are a fun and interactive way for students to learn about community helpers! I tried to make these tri-folds as helpful and broad-coverage as possible. It is easy for teachers because it saves paper, helps students focus on specific targets, and covers several areas.
** 2 GRAPHICS ORGANIZERS:
1. KWL : Know, Wonder, Learned
2. Can, Have, Are
** Primary Lined Version and Standard Lined Versions
** 2 PDF Files
** Each comes in Black and White and Color Version: 2 different skin tones
This Tri-fold/Brochure works great as a supplement or in
conjunction with your community helpers unit!
You can use it as a class activity while you are learning about
community helpers, and fill it out all together as you go along. Or
alternatively, you can use it as individual work, or a wrap-up
activity after you have learned about the community helper and
use as re-inforcement of the lesson.
Tri-folds are a fun and convenient way for students to learn
actively. Just print the 2 pages (you will need to be able to do
double-sided printing) and hand out. Students will complete the
tri-fold and then fold at the edges.
You can also use the tri-folds as extra pages in student notebooks as graphic organizer add-ins.
