    This is a fun unit. I read the Town Mouse and the country mouse first and we talk about the differences between urban and rural communities. We do venn diagrams to compare. The final task is a hands on project. The group has to build a model of a community to demonstrate their knowledge of that community (ie, what would the community have, pay attention to spacing... lots of empty land in rural communities etc.) Then they must orally present their projects and do a written assignment. In the written assignment I ask them to explain the reasons someone would want to live in this type of community. I have more ideas if you want. Email me.
