[Second graders have been studying communities in social studies. Ms. Stephanie sent these photos and explains what they’ve been up to below.]
We just finished up a community unit in Social Studies and the children worked with a partner to map out and then build their own communities using empty cartons, pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, etc.
During the unit, we looked at several things: Urban, Suburban, and Rural communities What communities need- fire departments, police stations, library, grocery store, etc. Community Helpers Transportation Citizens’ rights and responsibilities
On September 27th, we’re going to visit City Hall and Mayor Hughes is going to talk with the children and on October 10th, we’re going to the Fire Station.
