Introduce your students to the many men and women in our communities who help us every day. Learning about the community is a large component of primary grade Social Studies instruction. We’ve been working hard to develop some amazing community helpers worksheets and activities to help your young learners get to know the people we depend on the most.
These free community helper worksheets engage your young learners in identifying different community helpers. On each worksheet, students are given a picture stimulus to look at. The goal is for the student to identify and write the name of that community helper. Students are provided with a word bank to assist with spelling.
