Our Communities lesson plan introduces students to communities, including what they are and the different types that exist. During this lesson, students are asked to match photos to the type of community in which they would normally be found: rural, suburban, or urban. Students are also asked to match terms with their correct definitions in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define the types of communities: urban, suburban, and rural; and identify several characteristics of each. The students will also be able to compare and contrast the different communities.
