First graders have been learning about community helpers. They have done research, will be dressing up as various helpers, and more. They ended this unit with a field trip experience where they got to see what firefighters do each day to keep our community safe!
First graders traveled to the fire station in Spring Hill where they listened to firefighters explain their jobs. They were able to explore some of the different tools and equipment, including the fire trucks! They learned that firefighters are always learning and keeping themselves prepared just in case they are needed. Homework was assigned to the first graders to learn their address and make sure they practiced fire safety at home. Most importantly, students learned just how important these community helpers are!
