Teaching about communities? This is a great at-home or in-school project for young students to experience the different types of communities such as urban, suburban, and rural. Students can work alone or in groups to complete a model of whichever community they choose. Explicit directions with pictures and suggested materials on how to build at included as well as a letter to parents to let them know of the great things their children are learning about in school!
The final page is also some other possible ideas for a community unit.
