We are deep into our study of Community Helpers that ties into our IB unit “How We Organize Ourselves”. We invite many members of the community into our classroom to show us how they do their jobs. Last week, we had Domino’s Pizza Makers visit our classrooms. We had a GREAT time!
All we had to do was call our local Domino’s and they came right out and did this great demo for us! They also brought us pizza for lunch and gave us cups full of goodies to take home. 🙂
A few weeks ago we studied Community Helpers. As part of that study, we looked at the tools that different community helpers use. This is the Doctor Bag we made to include in our Inquiry Notebooks.
We took these items (cotton balls, band-aids, stickers, tissues, tongue depressors) and glued them inside the Doctor bags we made. We took a 9×12 piece of black construction paper, folded it in half, rounded the corners, and cut some handles out of scraps of black construction paper. We then added a white circle and two red strips of paper for the first aid sign on the outside of the bag. The kiddos labeled each of the items so they could use those words in their writing.
