Our 2nd graders studied types of communities and what makes up a community. We learned about urban, rural and suburban communities. We took all the parts of a community and divided them into four subgroups; Places to Work, Places to Play, Places to Shop and Places to Live. The students then took all of what they discovered and created their own communities. They named their communities, agreed on things they would find in their city and then drew a map. Below are their finished products!
