Community helpers are a vital part of any local area. Young kids typically learn about these important jobs as their first real introduction to social studies.  These free community helpers activities will pair perfectly with an early elementary community helpers unit or just to teach your children about the different jobs people do in the world around them.

What is a community helper?

Community helpers refer to individuals who work in a variety of local jobs, typically in positions that help the people or animals of that community.

Examples of community helpers:

  • Police officer
  • Fire fighter
  • Paramedic
  • Mail carrier
  • Bank clerk
  • Construction worker
  • Librarian
  • Doctor or nurse
  • Veterinarian
  • Trash collector
  • Teacher

These are all positions young children notice in the world around them. It’s really helpful to start with the most visible roles and to help kids of different ages think through why these jobs are so helpful. When they can connect how someone helps them, it’s easier for them to understand why these roles are helpful for other people, too.

What are community helpers worksheets?

This pack contains six printable activities and a cover page. Each page covers different important roles to help kids get a better understanding of why these jobs are so important.

  • Baker
  • Doctor
  • Police Officer
  • Fireman
  • Construction Workers

The final sheet in the pack is a reflection activity, inviting children to think about others that help support their community. This is a perfect way to extend this new learning and think of all the special jobs they’ve seen in the world too. Possible answers to other community workers might include:

  • Nurses
  • Post office workers
  • Trash collectors
  • Teachers
  • Dentists
  • Chemists or pharmacists
  • Farmers

We are sure that your kids will think of loads more as well. For each of the featured community helpers, there is a standard PDF file worksheet for the kids to fill out, which includes:

  • Information on what the role of the community helper is for kids to read
  • Picture of the helper
  • Tracing activity to reveal the name of the community helper  & practice fine motor skills
  • An interactive picture sort to identify some of the things (4) that the helper uses in their role
