Communities are groups of people with common interests. We all belong to several communities such as our street, town, county, country or the world. We also have religious communities such as Christians or Muslims.

In a classroom there is a group of people, both children and the teacher, who have a common interest. Can you think what that common interest might be? It might be geography if it’s a geography lesson, or more generally it might be education. Let's look at the similarities and differences found in communities.
