Weather

In orlando, The average rainfall for the year of 2013 is 50.1 inches and 1289 Millimeters. The good of this is so plants, Grass, Forests and other stuff get water. It wont be so dry, well have more plants, grass, forests it will be more healthy. The bad of this is sometimes it rains to much. You cant do much in the rain. When its cold you cant do much you can get sick. But when its hot you sweat & its hard to work in the heat.

Wildlife

The wildlife helps the area by trees helping us breathe, animals as pets. But the bad thing is deforestation. People cutting down trees for paper, desks, pencils etc. And when they cut the trees down the animals have no where to live. And since we breathe from trees that is less air for us.


Overall reflection

All of these things make up the community it makes the community better, but sometimes worse. It makes it worse by it being hot. It makes it better by it raining making the trees, plants, grass and everything else stronger. Its also bad by deforestation. People cutting down the trees.
