About this unit

A community is a group of people all living in the same place. There are lots of different types of communities. Some have many people living close together close to places like shops, offices, hospitals, museums, movie theaters, and parks. Others have fewer people and buildings, but more nature and open space. Learn about how communities impact your life and how they can change over time.
