Weather

  • The average rainfall in Orlando Fl is 53.17 inches also the average weather in Florida is 72.6.

  • It affects the lives of the residents because if it rains or gets cold they have to put whatever they have to do on hold. Sometimes people say that when the weather changes it affects their health. The weather also affects us by what we can or cannot do during that time. Or what we have to wear if its cold,rainy, or hot. The weather affects our moods as well. It affects our mood by getting us grumpy, happy, sad or mad depending on the weather.



Natural Disasters

  • Hurricane Katrina was one of the most five deadliest and destructive Hurricanes in the United States.

  • Florida got hit with natural disasters for 2 years in the past 10 years, but in the 1990’s we got hit almost every year.

  • Hurricane Katrina affected over 15 million people in different factors such as the economy, evacuations, water, and gas prices.

  • To be prepared for any natural disasters you need to pay attention to the weather channel and the news for any news. Then, buy some supplies so you can be prepared for the unexpected. Some supplies you can get would be clothing, food, shelter, safety,flashlights, and water. You should also keep your medications in a box so you can keep them fresh. Lastly, if you have pets make a kit for them to so you can keep them safe as well.

History

  • Florida was founded on March, 30, 1821.A man named Juan Ponce de Leon founded Florida. Florida’s current population size is 19.32 million.

  • My community has changed over time because before a lot of kids vandalized houses and people would have loud parties. But as soon as we started doing neighborhood watch our neighborhood got better. Also,now we have a police officer going around our neighborhood to watch for people creating mischief, and it makes me feel safer.



Residents

  • The housing in my community is mostly houses. Basketball in my neighborhood is a popular pastime because all the kids in my neighborhood play basketball or swim in the pool. Another popular pastime is gardening. Mostly, the adults do the gardening rarely the kids. Finally, the other popular pastime is riding bikes, we usually race our bikes and ride them. We ride our bikes for the exercise.


Wildlife

  • The wildlife we have in our community are Cats, Dogs, and Armadillos.

  • The Cats help our community by killing rodents.

  • Dogs help our community by alerting us when they bark that somebody is near.

  • Armadillos help the community by eating the things that can harm us including snakes, scorpions,and spiders.

  • The most interesting animal in my community would have to be a dog because they can alert you when someone is coming, and they can see in the dark just like cats.



Culture

  • In my community we have all types of races but mostly Hispanics,and Caucasians.

  • My culture is Hispanic, but I was born in Cayey, Puerto Rico

  • All the cultures interact to make a community by being kind to one another and we all live together in peace and have no problems with one another.





Maps

I chose those three places because I visit them all the time. It is next to my house. Most of them are little fields where I like to go to play sports and games.


Overall Reflection

I know Florida's history because I lived here for along time and Florida is a good place to live. Also, most of the people in my community are kind to one another and the places here are nice.
