About Hawaii!


Hawaii is called the Aloha State. When you think of Hawaii, you would probably think of small cottages and huts made of wood and leaves. But Hawaii is like other states. It has city's that look like normal city's. It isn't very different from anywhere else. Hawaii is the newest state in the united states. It became an official state in 1959. It is located in the Pacific ocean. It has eight islands which are called: Kauai, Kaho'olawe, Ni'ihau, Oahu, Lana'i, Molokai, Maui, and the last one is called Hawaii. Hawaii's capital, Honolulu, is located on the island Oahu. The language spoken there is mostly English. But some Hawaiians speak Polynesian (mostly known as Hawaiian.)

Foods in Hawaii

Hawaiians eat lots of vegetables and fruits. They also eat a lot of sea food. They eat birds and pigs. Hawaiians have a lot of very good looking foods. One of the most famous foods is called poi. Poi is a sauce like food made out of the roots of a plant called taro.

weather of Hawaii

Hawaii's weather is very warm. There are really only two seasons in Hawaii, summer and winter, in other words Kua (summer) and hooilo (winter). In the summer, the average temperature is between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Hawaii's winters are very warm. I'm a little jealous at how warm it is. The winter temperature averages around 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Seeing how it is so warm, you would think there is no snow. But that's where you are wrong. The mountains in Hawaii are high enough to get snow. But it usually only lasts a few days.

Hawaiian symbols

Hawaiian tree

Hawaii's tree is called the Kukui. It is also called the Candlenut tree. It is a symbol of peace, protection and enlightenment. The fruit is poisonous, but it can be prepared to be a food source. It is also used as a medical treatment. It got its name as the Candlenut because the fruit contains a flammable oil, and it burns like a candle. It grows best in moist ground. It has small white flowers on it.

State song

The state song is originally in a different language. This is just the translation. The song is called "Hawaiì i pono 'î"
