Where Do You Live?
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     What do you say when someone asks you, "Where do you live?" Do you know which country you live in? Do you know what state you live in? Do you know the name of the town or city you live in? Do you know your street address? That's a lot to know!
 
2     First, do you know your mailing address? Look on some of your mom's or dad's mail. In the middle of the envelope, you will see your parent's name. Then you will see two more lines. The middle line is your street address. The third line says the name of your town and state. Instead of the whole name of the state, your address may have just two letters. Then there is the zip code.
 
3     The street address tells where you get your mail. It may be a number and street name. It may be a number and a county road number. Some mailing addresses just have a rural route number. These numbers tell your mail carrier where to deliver your mail. Your address answers the question "Where do you live?" It is an exact location. It can be found on a map.
 
4     Maps have four main directions. North, south, east, and west are called cardinal directions. There will be a symbol on the map that shows the directions. It may look like a plus sign. Or it may have more lines and arrows in between those four main lines. On most maps, the top arrow points to north. This tells you that north is at the top of the map. The bottom arrow points to south, which would be at the bottom of the map. West is on the left side, and east is on the right side.
