Land forms in the Midwest

Our Midwest is mostly flat lands. There are a few hills and mountains.When the glaciers moved down our region they made hills flat and filled valleys with soil. That made plains covered by grasses and wildflowers. plains covered by grasses are named prairies.

The Climate of the Midwest

Temperatures at The Midwest are wild. The land by the Great Lakes can experience what is called Lake affect. Since water takes time to heat and cool the land air over the water is often hotter/cooler than the air over the land.When the wind blows across the lakes they carry hot/cool air over the lands, affecting temperature in the Midwest.
