Where I Went This Week

First I went to the Picifac Ocean . The Picifac Ocean is the largest ocean in the world!!  The Picifac Ocean is so big it helps travel big boats like Barges to get across the ocean to transport goods.

Second I went to Glen Canyon.The Glen Canyon dam and other dams pervide energy and water wich supports growing of populatoin. The Glen Canyon is arid to semi arid wich means very dry and hot.

Third I went to Hollywood. I went to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Holly wood Walk of Fame is a series of side walks along both sides of a 15 block side walk on Hollywood blvd.

Fourth I wentto the Golden Gate bridge. The Golden Gate bridge is the opening of the San Fransisco bay into the Picifac Ocean. The Golden Gate bridge is the longest bridge span in the world.

Finally I went to the California Gold Rush. The California Gold Rush slowly began on January 24,1884. The gold seekers (49ers)often faced hard jorneys like dangours mining camps.

I hope you visit good places too. Maddie

The West

          Hey!! its Maddie im about to travel through the west. I want to learn more about the California Gold Rush. Like, who was the first person to find gold? I already know that the people who were looking for the gold (miners) were called "49ers". I'd also like to go to Los Angeles and visit the Hollywood sign and maybe see some stars.  Then I'd also like to visit the Rocky Mountains, and learn what states the mountains go through.  I will also travel to Yellow Stone National Park and see all the sights and learn about all the trees and plants. I hope you enjoy the west too.  Talk soon.

Maddie's First Region

            Hey! I have a couple places you should visit. The place that I know a lot about is the Midwest. The Midwest is pretty much farm land and it's all flat land.The main crops are wheat, soy beans, and corn. What I think is really cool is the history. some good history is the Fort Deerborn Massacre. I think its really cool to. What happened is the friendly Native Americans came and told the soldiers who were going to Indiana to save settlers that it was to dangerous.They said there was to many Native Americans that were dangerous but they still went.
