Today we began our Social Studies unit on Community Helpers. We did a quick introductory activity and then brainstormed all of the community helpers we could think of on the board. Most of the answers were fairly expected...doctors, police officers, figherfighters... one child's however:
"Turkey Vultures because they take all of the dead stuff of the street after cars hit it."
p.s when I got home today I had to google "Turkey Vultures"...they actually are a type of vulture. Points to my first grader for knowing that :)
