People live, work, and have fun together in many different kinds of communities. With the help of three children, students learn about the likes and differences of neighborhoods in the city, suburbs, and rural communities.

With the help of our local postman, students learn that a neighborhood is a place where families live, play, and work and that schools, police and fire stations, shopping areas, parks, and homes are all located there. He helps us recognize that families live in many kinds of homes and that they all have addresses that have two main parts: a street name and building number.
