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.
1. What does a chef do? How do they help us?
** Students write 5 things that a (community helper) does or how they help us
2. What kind of person would make a good (community helper)?
** Students write 3 descriptive adjectives or sentences
3. Where does a (community helper) work? Draw a picture.
** Students answer and draw.
4. Do you know any places where (community helper) work in your neighborhood? What are their names and where are they?
** THis is a fun and informative question for students to get to
know their neighborhoods better. Students write the workplace of
the community helper and any names they know (for instance, if
it is a chef: Carl's Pizzeria, or if it is a teacher: Lakewood
Elementary School) and the location of the workplace (ie: on Miller Street, near my house, etc.)
5. What tools or equipment does a (Community helper) use?
** Student draw a picture and write the word
** Students match the pictures with vocab from the word bank and write the word in the box.
7. If I were a (community helper)...
** Fun section to finish off. Student step into the shoes of the community helper and write what it might be like.
Thank you and Happy Teaching!
