Students will review the physical characteristics of a community. Then they will be introduced to what the human characteristics of a community are, for example, land use, population density, religion, and language.
Students will identify and describe each of the human characteristics of a community that were introduced. Then they will complete an activity to differentiate between human and physical characteristics. They will discuss with a partner about how human characteristics can give clues to the kind of place in which you may be.
Students will be given a task to explore more about human characteristics in their community. Each pair will be assigned a different human characteristic. They will think about how that characteristic is represented in their community. They will identify the characteristic in their community and think of a picture that would adequately symbolize it. The teacher will compile students' ideas into one slide to complete an infographic.
