Community Helpers: Labor Day, Social/Emotional Skills Activity Ideas
Labor Day is the perfect time to learn about community helpers. Labor Day is the one U.S. holiday that honors the commitments and contributions of all workers to our country. There are many community helpers besides first responders, teachers, medical professionals, etc. Think about it for a moment... The plumber comes to the house and fixes leaks, the new reporter keeps everyone informed during emergencies, and bakers make the bread for morning toast and lunchtime sandwiches.
Social/Emotional skills for empathy and positive contributions can be introduced when presenting the activity/lesson. about everyone can contribute to their family, class community, and that anyone can become a professional in any field.
The downloadable packets include the Community Helpers master, lesson ideas, and directions for folding the paper into an 8-page booklet.
