Places in a Community
A community is a group of people who live in the same city, town, or neighborhood.
What brings us together?
People who live in a community are called residents. All residents follow the same laws (rules). They all work together to make their community better.
All the residents in a community are different. You can learn a lot from people who are different from you. Most important is to respect other people's differences.
What jobs do these residents do in their community?
People believe in different things.
People eat different kinds of food at home depending on where their family is from. Always be polite and try new food (it's okay if you don't like it, but try).
Residents volunteer (choose to work without pay) to help their community. Together, they keep their community clean and help other people.
Everyone has a culture. Culture came from your ancestors a long time ago and from your family now. Culture can shape the way you think and see the world. Knowing about your own culture first will help you to understand the cultures of others. Read the story in the

Share the food, music, art, and games of your culture with friends. Also, try to experience new things from other cultures. This helps residents in a community get to know and understand each other.

Celebrations are special days that we spend with family and friends. Many special days, like Christmas, Chinese New Year, or birthdays, are celebrated annually (once a year). Others, like weddings or graduating from school, happen less often.
To help you understand and share your culture with others, it is helpful to make your own cultural profile. Here are some examples.
