Each year at the end of a social studies unit on community helpers, Sierra Vista Elementary School hosts a Community Helper Day. After learning about community helpers and other occupations, kindergarten students get to dress up as a “worker” they would like to be when they get bigger. The kids rotate through different stations where parents and grandparents share information about their jobs. They explain what their job is, demonstrate tools or clothing they use, and have the children engage with props or tools used in that job.
This year, the kindergartners learned about being a:
- Mechanical engineer
- Construction worker
- Football coach
- Pediatric occupational therapist
- PR rep for Suzuki motorcycles
- University fitness director
A wonderful, interactive day of learning was had by all!
