Compare and Contrast Community Helpers

I was going through some of my old materials and found an activity I created ages ago.  Don't you LOVE when that happens!  These are cards you can cut and mount on either index cards or construction paper.  I use these with any game of choice: Jenga, Candyland, Chutes and Ladders, etc.  Students must say how they are the same and different before they can take a turn in a game.  Just a simple and easy way to work on comparing/contrasting goals with community helpers curriculum vocabulary.  You can go over in beginning different topics to consider when thinking of the answers: cars they drive, where they work, who they help, tools they use, what they wear, etc.  This can help with word finding difficulties and as a guide for students unable to figure it out on their own.


  1. Used this with students and it was great! Thanks!

  2. Glad it was helpful!! Keep checking back for more!!!
