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.
