ED 417 – 02
Making doctor bags
The Line Up!
Science experiment on stamp ink
Making a cook book
Before starting this unit I will do KWL chart to see what my students know, and what they want to know about community helpers
Use a file folder as a medical bag cutting out a handle. Have students glue items into their bags
Have students paint each the cupped areas of an egg carton (cut up one for each child) then poke a hole and put a piece of yarn through for a stethoscope!
Sung to: "Oh, my darling Clementine"
I'm a vet, I'm a vet,I'm a veterinarian.I take care of the animals,And I treat them one by one.
I give shots, I set legs,And sometimes I operate.I take care of the animals,'Cause I think they are just great.
Bring your dogs, bring you cats,Bring your hamsters one by one.I take care of the animals,I'm a veterinarian.
Have a Police Officer come in and talk to the class telling them what he does to make their neighborhood a safer place
He will then pass out police badges to all the students
The Line Up!
(sung to: I'm A Little Teapot) I am a policeman, with my star. I help people near and far. If you have a problem, call on me. And I will be there, 9, 1, 1!
We are going to learn our addresses so the mail carriers will be able to deliver them to the right place.
We will learn this song to help…
(sung to: Row, Row, Row your Boat)
Nathanshill Lane, Nathanshill Lane,
Cincinnati OH, Cincinnati OH,
Ms. Mary’s home
When learning our addresses we will place them on large index cards. Next we need a stamp.
Making our own Post Officer Ink:
1 tsp. food coloring, 3 TBS. liquid starch, 1 TBS. waterDirections: Mix the ingredients to use as ink for any rubber stamps
Sung to "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" Write, write, write your cards, And lots of letters, too. I will bring them to your friends, And they will write back soon.
Have the children look through cook books and see what recipe they want to make. Have them create their own recipes by cutting out pictures of food and glue them to their recipe card.
Children can then create names for their dishes
Together we will create an ABC book of community helpers. Each child will get a letter.
