Creating a Community
Now Uncle Sam would like for you to imagine that you are no longer the only person on earth. Other people have joined you and all of you live in one large area. This large area is called a "community" and it can be as large as the world or as small as your family. People who have things in common such as economic, recreational, professional, or social interests form communities. What is a member of a community called? That's right, a citizen, and citizens have rights, privileges, and duties, as you have already learned.
Uncle Sam and the other citizens in your community have been busy helping you build homes for needy families. Complete the attached worksheet and explain in the text boxes why each of the following items has become a necessary part of your community.
