Identify characteristics of the different types of communities (urban, rural, suburban) with a cut-and-paste sorting worksheet.

What Are the Different Types of Communities?

This cut-and-paste worksheet is a simple yet effective way to help your students differentiate between urban, rural and suburban areas. Students are given a set of ten characteristics to cut out and read. These are a mix of words, statements and pictures that relate to each specific community. The goal is for students to take what they know about each community type and apply it to match the correct characteristics.
