1. Who are some community helpers? What do they do? Where can we find them? * Show pictures of real community helpers * Cover not to be afraid of them in uniform 2. What do I want to be when I grow up? Chart results and why. 3. Community helpers versus strangers – What is the differences? 4. Go in to depth about community helpers, what their role is in the community. Keep building on previous information. 5. Have different Community Helpers come into the classroom for an onsite field trip. Document under special activities on Lesson Plan. Example- discuss the Dentist coming to look at the children’s teeth. Why is she/he coming? What will the Dentist look at? What do we do to take care of our teeth and our gums?
