Using Instant Street View (Links to an external site.), enter your own neighborhood or zip code (or choose another place you’ve lived or visited that you would like to explore). In your post, identify the area you are exploring. Review your surroundings as though you were an anthropologist. Include screenshots if you would like to do so.

  • What can you tell about the area? Is it urban, suburban, or rural?
  • What kind of buildings are there?
    • Do the buildings look like single family houses or apartments?
    • How many stories are they?
    • How much space is there between buildings?

  • What is the likely socioeconomic status of the people who live there, based on the buildings, vehicles, and yards?
  • What do you think the everyday lives are like for the people who live there?
