What would life be like if you lived somewhere else? Would it be strange to take the subway to school or to live five miles from your nearest neighbor? This volume explores the similarities and differences between several types of communities, focusing in particular on urban, suburban, and rural areas. Think About It and Compare and Contrast sidebars encourage young readers to engage with the material, while vocabulary call-outs and the glossary help expand language skills. Sure to inspire a lively discussion, this title works well with lower elementary social studies curricula.
