ESSENTIAL WORKER INQUIRY

How can we show gratitude to essential workers and helpers in our community?

In ordinary times, essential workers are key community helpers that play important roles in society. During extraordinary times, however, these community helpers become critical to the health, well-being, and safety of our communities. In this week-long inquiry, students identify essential workers and consider how they serve as community helpers in the fields of food production, transportation, healthcare, and emergency services.  


Throughout the week, students use their learning to plan and perform an “Expression of Gratitude” that honors these essential workers and the contributions they make to our communities.
