    We are studying communities as well. We are building models of a rural, town or urban community using junk. They must draw a blue print/map with a legend,write a short blurb and present it to the class. They LOVE it. We also read the Town Mouse and the Country Mouse to compare the city and the country (although very traditional). Gruntle Piggle Takes off by Jean Little is another good story about a city pig visiting the country/farm. We are looking through phone books to see what is in our community, drawing and reading maps and creating slogans to represent our community. We're also using Venn diagrams to compare characteristics of different communities. You can include lumber communities, ranch communities, farm communities etc. I've included learning Canadian capitals and provinces in this unit as well. If you want more ideas just email me. I hope this helps.
