Introduction

Carson, Theoren,Jayden's page
C's paragraph. I have chosen to do Australia. I know that Australia has a very big desert. I don't think it has any major forests. It is very warm. It is a star vacation destination. It is a very big destination for scuba diving and swimming. It is also home to lots of exotic fish.(Picture:Goolgle search Volcano Geography). Theoren's paragraph. I chose Australia because I always wanted to go there and see how people interact with other people. I've always wanted to see their land forms and animals. I want to see there animals because they look funny and weird. I also chose this because I want to know what kind of government they have.

Subtopic 3
: the moovment in the earths crust efected the phisycal enviroment by earthquakes making volcanoes erupt and then animals die but the ash is very healthy for plants. Also moovment in the crust effects the shape of the landscapeby making dips in the surface and making Australia bigger. This allows more animals to live in Australia then more people will live there.

Subtopic 4

  • : In Australia most of the houeses they make are semetricle and have lots of windows to let the sun come in durring thre summer.Transportation Because of the enviroment people in Australia get around mostly in plains roadtrains or walk (in north). They fly in plains because Australia is a giant desert and because there is alot of people in Australia and plains hold alot of people. If you had to choose from walking accros the big dessert and flying over it you would probably pick flying because its quicker and easer. The people in australia grow most of there food on farms. They also have there own cattle farms.

Conclustion I think that Australia should be the #1 place in the world becouse it is diferent from every wear els and people who like hot
places would like Australia and most people like Australia. also it has exotoc fish and very cool animals so remember tell every one about Australia.
