FC: Community Helpers By: Ms. Cheung
1: What is a Community? - A community is made up of different groups of people who live and work together. - The community has a specific location (it is in one place), it has rules and laws that people must follow and the people work together to solve their problems. - The very smallest unit which could be called a community is your family. The next smallest is your neighborhood, and finally the largest unit is the town or city that you live in.

13: Community Workers Poem By: Sharon McDonald Who brings the mail? Who walks the beat? Who puts our fires? Who cleans our streets? Who checks out books? Who drives a bus? Who teaches math and reading to us? Who cleans our teeth? Who bakes us pies? Who takes our trash? Who checks our eyes? Who does work to improve our lives? Community Workers! Is that a surprise?
