Community Places and Buildings

by www.elcivics.com

Communities can be large or small, but they all have buildings and locations like schools, libraries, police stations, fire stations, civic centers, restaurants, stores, and malls. Communites also have sidewalks, streets, and parks. Living in a community is convenient because there are many services available. People often feel attached to their communities, their neighborhoods, and their neighbors. (3-page lesson)
