In this unit, students explored the necessary components of a community/neighborhood, including, laws, community 'helpers,' homes, street furniture, and establishments that provide needed goods and services. Students discussed what it means to be a member of a community and what rights and responsibilities accompany that privilege. The unit included a great deal of 'first-hand' experience as students met and interviewed community members, explored a neighborhood and spoke with voters as they entered the booths in this recent election.
