We started Community for K4


Recommended Posts

We have community units in both 2nd and 3rd grade with Oak Meadow. This what I did:


2nd grade:

source to product week with a farm visit

animal helpers/humans who serve our community

caring for humans and animals

commuication of animals and humans



We are about 1/2 through that unit and really enjoying it. I pick one fiction book to read and find an easy reader for her to read. We talk about the topics and maybe do a field trip.


3rd grade plans:

transportation & communication

community services


ethnic groups--local ethnic festival

city history

famous locals--we have a few that we will learn about

local highlights--visitor's center trip

local resources--farming (this will transition us into our farming unit)


Each week, we will talk about and/or experience these aspects of the community.


For K-4, you could do the alphabet field trip idea and visit a different local place for each letter of the alphabet at the rate of one a week and then do corresponding activities at home. Just an idea.


Hope this helps. :001_smile:
