History

Orlando was back in 1838. Long time ago it was called Jernigan. Then 6 years later the community changed the its name to Orlando. Then in 1857 the U.S post office adopted the name. The town of Orlando was incorporated in 1875, and 22 persons were qualified as voters.The community has changed by time because no there are more people that are living here. It has changed because now the houses are built more better

Wildlife


The wildlife found in and around my community:

There are a lot of animals in Orlando Florida. One of the most common one is a alligator. Another ones area Pleated Woodpeckers, Red- bellied Woodpecker, Eagles , Non Venomous Snakes, Turtles, Manatees, Honey bees, Osprey, Owls, and also a Red-tailed Hawks, Florida Panther. Wildlife can also harm our community because one animal can eat more than it suppose to eat then it ruins the whole thing. But it also can help us by, the animal that eat animal that has died or is rotten. Those animal clean our environment. One of the animals that i find fascinating is a Eastern Chipmunk. I find it fascinating because it is really small and fits everywhere and also it eats fruits like me. It also has 3 to 5 babies. Eastern chipmunks helps plants and fungi by spreading seeds and also spores.

Culture

The most common Culture in my community is Hispanics( Latinos). They speak a lot of Spanish. My Culture culture is a Mexican Culture. Mexico is the 11th most populated country in the world with around 117 million people (as of July 2012). The main Language is Spanish. Mexico is best known for The Mariachi. All the cultures interact to form a community by working together to make a better community and respecting all the there differences.

My Map

I picked my church, my brothers school, the Florida Mall, my house, and Liberty Middle School because at least I go there once a day. I also picked that because I like going there.


Overall Reflection

How all of the above make my community. All of the above make my community by adapting to the natural disasters. They also form a community my respecting each other cultures. Us the people have to get used to the wildlife. We also form a community by adapting to the temperature and the rain. We also form a community by getting to know each other from where we live and where we go every day.
