Panama Canal

The Panama Canal was built by the americans. It was built because it would save months of traveling, and it would save a dangerous journey by sea. It took the americans 10 years to build the Panama Canal. The Panama Canal is a lock-and-lake canal. It works by having a series of lakes with different elevations that are connected by a series of locks.
