Communities
By Trista L. Pollard
  

1     Community is a "together" type of word. Why? Well, communities are where groups of people live together. They live in houses and apartments in the same area. They also share the same type of government.
 
2     Geographers who study communities understand how we use our land on Earth. Around the world and in the United States there are different types of communities. A community can be a suburb, an urban area, or a rural area.
 
3     Urban areas or cities have large populations. There are many buildings that are close together. People live closer to their neighbors in urban areas. There are also houses and apartments. Apartments are small homes inside large buildings. This way, more families can live in a smaller area. You will find many schools, banks, and stores in urban areas. Cities usually have more jobs for people. Some people move to cities to be closer to their work. Other people come into urban areas to have fun. They may visit museums, stores, and zoos. The Museum of Natural History is in New York City. Many people go into New York City to visit this museum.
