My Neighborhood – Where Do You Live? Worksheet Activity

Read this information about neighborhoods. Think about the meanings of the words in bold type.

What do you see when you look out your windows at home? Do you see tall buildings and busy streets? Or do you see trees and grass? Is your home an apartment in a big city? Or is it a house away from the city?

Whether you live in a city or town, you live in a neighborhood. Your neighborhood is the streets around your house or apartment building. If you live in an apartment building, you have many neighbors. If you live in a house, your neighbors live in the nearest house.

What can you tell about your neighborhood? What is the name of the street where you live? Are there stores and offices near your home? Do you walk to school? Or do you take the bus to a school in another neighborhood? Is there a park or playground in your neighborhood?
