Meet your Neighbors
You are new in your neighborhood and you want to meet all of your new neighbors. You have decided to plan a cookout at your house to meet them. Once they arrive you realize that they are all community helpers.
You meet them all and eat lunch with them. While eating you ask them some question about what is special about their job. You ask the fireman how many fires he has put out and you ask the doctor how many people he sees daily.
After all the people leave you decide to write a letter and draw a picture to your friends where you use to live so they can see your new neighbors too.
The TopicQuest Page has some links you might want to stop at before you write your letter so you can tell your friends more. The new Neighbor website tells about community helpers and what they do for a living.
Have a GREAT cookout!
