As part of the second-grade social studies curriculum, students learn about different types of communities. Children at Northwest Elementary School took the lesson to the next level with the creation of an elaborate hallway display.

Students learned about the characteristics of rural, suburban and urban communities. Each class was assigned one of three types and had to create a large-scale art project. The rural section of the hallway featured a barn with animals, while the suburban area was filled with pictures of cars, houses and stores. 

Second-grade teachers said that purpose of the project was to help students understand the differences in the three types of a communities through a visual representation.
