This web sight has a list of books that cover a variety of topics in social studies. I chose the topic rules and found a list of books that could be used to introduce the subject.


social studies: civics

sub-topic: community helper

This lesson discussed the roles of different jobs. I would adapt this to fit with roles of the teacher, the principal, the librarian, the students, the janitor, etc. The site itself has a list of lesson plans with the grade level it should be taught in.
