This flashcard book is perfect to teach students familiar places within their community in a Social Studies or Vocational lesson. A set of comprehension questions is included to help students identify the purpose/function of each flashcard.
You may laminate the book and bind it, and have students flip through the book as you work through the comprehension questions. You may also cut the pictures into flashcards and have students play a matching game or even bingo!
This activity can be teacher and staff directed if your students have difficulty reading. Students can sit in a group and each take turns answering a comprehension question. However, if your students are able to read, you may turn this into a comprehension activity that they can complete independently (such as a copy/paste activity).
Feel free to utilize this tool in any way you see fit. I hope it is helpful!

- Grocery Store chain
- Black space so that you may paste a picture of your own school to help your students identify their school building.

Please keep in mind that I live in NYC, so some pictures (such as the police cars and train stations, as well as chain stores are authentic to the city).
