TCS 1st grade students have been learning about communities and community helpers. They learned about goods, services, producers and sellers. As a group, they created their own community model and determined what types of businesses, residences, and services their community would need. The students constructed each of the buildings out of boxes and added roads and landscapes as the final touches to their project. It was fun to listen to them collaborate as they discovered they needed a fire station, a vet, schools, and even a Publix! Each student also chose a community helper to research, and created a poster about their helper. They concluded their lesson by dressing up like their community helper and presenting their poster to their parents. Enjoy photos on our Facebook page.
