In Social Studies, we have been learning about services that people need. We learned how services make a difference in people's quality of life. We explored the many ways that rural and urban communities in Canada, India, Peru, Tunisia, and Ukraine work together. This activity will help you show your teacher that you understand the similarities and differences in quality of life between the communities we have been studying.
