Buildings in the Community

Community buildings include: schools, libraries, post offices, police stations, fire stations, city halls, and more. Each building has a special purpose. For example, we go to the post office to buy stamps and mail packages. We go to the library to borrow books and read magazines. We go to the police station to report a crime. This ESL lesson is designed for beginning level English students. (4-page lesson)
