A common question in social studies for kindergarten homeschool is what is a community? It is a part of the social studies curriculum. A community is a place where people live together with each other. People in a community interact with each other and responsible for the well-being of their community.
There are two major types of communities:
1. Urban 2. Rural 3. Suburban
Also called as the city is the more highly populated and busier community. In this type of community, you will see taller buildings, more traffic and a lot of hustle bustle around. People live in apartments rather than houses and there is always heavy traffic.
The rural community is the more peaceful kind of community. It mostly consists of farms and fields and animals and very few people. It is the agricultural areas of a country. People live in small houses that are located at a longer distance from each other sometimes even miles. There is hardly any traffic and has a very peaceful environment.
A suburban community is located at nearby the urban community but outside the city. It is less busy than the city and less populated also.
