After talking about maps we turned our attention to our town and introduced the word community. "what is a community?"
One of our friends told us, " a community is a group of people living together." Another said, " it's a group of people working together".
We talked about our favorite places in our town and agreed that these were places everyone in our town shared. Some of our class wanted to create another kind of map of our town. This one with some specific places on it. With paper, pencil and crayon they drew our school, the mall, Paynes prairie, the clock tower, and the football stadium.
