Community Helpers Turboquest
Introduction to community helpers A community is a place where people live, work, and play. We call it a neighborhood. Community helpers are people who help us in our neighborhood. They can help us by keeping us safe, making sure we are healthy, cooking food for us, or teaching us. Let's take a walk in our neighborhood and learn about community helpers! http://youtu.be/kwhYZcFNWv0
