Explain the importance of appreciating and learning about diverse communities. These communities affect students’ daily lives. Begin by explaining what a county is. It is the largest and is made up of numerous cities, towns, or villages. Counties provide services like public safety and access to education. Ask students if they know what county they live in. Next, explain the differences between villages, towns, and cities. After this, have students drag the words to the correct place on the pyramid from biggest to small. Then use the t-charts to compare the different communities. Finally, read the sentences and have students identify whether they are describing a county, city, town, or village by circling the correct word.
