Welcome To Earth!

A Brochure To The Living Planet By: Audrey Rademacher

Welcome To Earth!

Welcome Aliens! There are many things that I should warn you about before you decide to come here. One thing is that Earth has time zones. We have different times all around the world. Another thing that you should know is that if you're going towards the North Pole; it's going to get colder. If your going near the equator, it's going to be really hot! So heavy clothes up at the poles and light clothing at the equator. Earth also has 7 continents: North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, Antarctica, and Australia. Earth also has climate zones, so there's different climates in different parts of the world. All of these things are very important so we know what time it is so as you travel you could gain time or lose it. Climate zones are important because the changes in climate for different areas so make sure you have the right clothes. Lastly, it's important that we have continents because that's how we separate the Earth into different regions.

Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan is a beautiful body of water on the west coast of Michigan, or the mitten. Beware, because Lake Michigan has some challenges! One challenge is pollution, and we need to be careful about what we put in our lakes. Another challenge is invasive species! Look out for zebra mussles because if you step on one it hurts! Lake Michigan also experiences the challenge of disappearing native species! Also shoreline wet lands and water withdraws so watch out!

Yet, aside from all of the challenges, there are also opportunities! In Lake Michigan there is fish for food and fresh water! So it's not all bad!

With vacations you need Tips! One tip is that you swim in July or August, because the water is cold before then, so by those months, it should be heating up! Another tip is that you should watch your step on the beach of Lake Michigan, because some of it may be polluted or dirty!

Packing is an important thing for vacations or traveling. For Lake Michigan, you will want to make sure you bring some layers of clothes! Michigan weather is unpredictable. Yet, obviously if you're going to a lake you will want a swimsuit, because there's swimming! But, if you're planning on going in the winter, you'll want hats and gloves to protect your skin!

Other places/lakes in the area are Lake Superior, Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, and Lake Huron. These 5 lakes are known as the Great Lakes.

Mauna Loa

The Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on Earth and it's one of Hawaii's 5 volcanos. As any other volcano, the Mauna Loa has challenges. The largest challenge for volcanos is that they erupt. An eruption is when lava and other objects are shot out of a volcano. Also, beside challenges, there are opportunities. The major opportunity for volcanos is that they can form islands. Before you decide if you want to visit the Mauna Loa, take this tip into consideration. The Mauna Loa erupts every six years, that's its pattern. But, that doesn't mean that it can't just erupt whenever, because it's still an active volcano. Yet, if you do want to visit the Mauna Loa, then you'll want to pack a camera to take pictures, and skin protection, like sunscreen, with that you'll want thin layers because it's hot in Hawaii! And while you're in the area, you might want to check out the other volcanos in Hawaii. They are the Kilauea, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai, and Kohala. Those are the five Hawaian volcanoes!

Sahara Desert

The Sarhara Desert is one of the hottest places on Earth. It's the size of the United States! With a place this big, there are going to be some challenges. One challenge is that the temperature can cause diseases! It's just too hot there! Another challenge that the Sahara Desert faces is that there is little rainfall, so then there are very few plants! Yet, there is an opportunity to these challenges! One opportunity is that there is very rich soil, so if it wasn't so hot, there could be some very good plants! A tip is that deserts can only have plants that don't require very much water, like a cactus. The desert also can only have animals that don't require very much water, too, such as camels and reptiles. Those are some tips that you should think about if you choose to travel to the Sahara. So be aware that there's wild life! My last tip for traveling to the Sahara Desert is that you'll need a tour guide, because it's easy to get lost! And once you get lost , you could be lost forever! There are lots of things that you'll need to pack for the Sahara... Like comfy walking shoes, sun glasses, sunblock, water bottles, hat/cap, first aid, sleeping bag, and a turban-blocks sun, wind, and sand! If you enjoyed your visit to the Sahara, check out the Kalahari Desert, Gobi Desert, Great Basin Desert, and many more!
