We invite you to view our Essex Junction Walking Tour Video!
Essex Junction Community Walk – Fall 2014 from Meghan Turcot on Vimeo.
After going on our community walk and seeing all of the businesses and buildings in our community, we brainstormed different community helpers that we have. We then thought about the type of citizen and community helper we want to become. View our artwork below to see what we came up with. Ask your child about their community helper and why they chose that specific one.
I looked at the forecast for this week and it seems like Friday, September 19th is going to be sunny without rain. Because of this, we will plan on going on our Essex Junction community walk. We will walk after lunch and return before the end of the day. Please let me know if you have any conflicts with this. Although it is not supposed to rain, it may be chilly. Please make sure that your child comes to school with good walking shoes and something warm to wear outside. Thank you!
We have started our “Communities” unit in Social Studies. We discussed what a community is and compared various types including: rural, suburban, and urban. We even wrote about the type of community we would like to live in.
During this unit, we will explore our own community of Essex Junction. We will discuss the various goods and services that are provided in this community as well as determine the difference between needs and wants.
