Grade 1 elementary students 'Build Bentley'

The Social Studies unit "My Community" was what the Grade 1 Bentley Elementary students finished the year with. They explored what a community is, who a community is composed of and what duties are necessary to keep a community functioning.

The Social Studies unit "My Community" was what the Grade 1 Bentley Elementary students finished the year with. They explored what a community is, who a community is composed of and what duties are necessary to keep a community functioning.

The students investigated Bentley, their community, which gave them the chance to consider common values, a sense of belonging, and many cultures and languages.

The students looked into Bentley's historical appearance, as well as modern improvements. They enjoyed “Building Bentley” and understanding that they are a small part in a much bigger world.
