Product Description
This visually appealing and engaging social studies unit will help teach your students about the community around them. It focuses on the differences in rural, urban, and suburban communities. Activities include: posters, center activities, Illustrated task cards, worksheets and more. See more details below.

~Currently my Top Best Seller~ It would be a great addition to your social studies curriculum about communities. Included in this pack you will find the following:

~A set of posters for the three types of communities. Great for reference when introducing students to the different communities and when they complete their other assignments.

~36 printable task cards for identifying rural, suburban and urban communities. (both clip art and real photographs are used) Including recording sheet and answer key.

~Community sort with 60 cards and sorting mat. Using various pictures from the task card sets, to differentiate and have other options for practice with identification. This one can be used in small groups, having each student take turns adding to the sorting mat.

~A semi-realistic map that shows each type of community (The urban area is exaggerated, so it is more recognizable).
~A worksheet that coordinates with the map example, so students can outline the areas they think are urban, suburban and rural.

~A worksheet to list the characteristics of the different communities.

~A worksheet for the students to draw and tell about their own communities.

Six items total. This set would be appropriate for 2nd - 4th grade, and homeschoolers.
