Travel Guide To Planet Earth

Mt. McKinley, Amazon Rain Forest And The Sahara Dessert.

Mt .McKinley

Some opportunities that Mt. McKinley gives are hiking on the mountain, which is real fun, and another is skiing .Some place flood and in mountians it won't flood. Some obstacles Mt. McKinley has includes farming because it is difficult to farm on a mountain due to lack of rich soil. Also, building is hard too because when one wants to build, it is easier to build on flat land, making it difficult to build on an angle. When hiking on Mt. McKinley, the oxygen level is low because of the high altitude, so it will be hard to breath. Last, it can get really cold causing skin damage, so be careful. There can be avlances.(Info from Dave Zawalski)

Sahara Desert

A few opportunities for the Sahara Desert include animal study, the sand dunes for environmental changes to the structures, and the tourain for survival. The Sahara Desert offers obstacles as well such as extremely hot temperatures and few water and food resources. Because of this, starvation, dehydrdation, heat-stroke and sunburns can happen much easier. (Info from Ann Zimmermann)


Travel Tips:

If you run out of water, a cactus has water in the 'arms', so cut into it see if you can get some water. It is important to bring enough water to make it though the time you are in the desert. If you go at night, it will be cooler and more enjoyable. However, be cautious because there are venemous snakes and scorpions that come out more at night!

Amazon Rain Forest

Some big opportunities the Amazon offers is the medicine plant! The medicine plant allows scientists to study the plant, and use its materials to produce new and more useful medicines to help clear diseases. The Amazon supports 20% of the air that humans breath which is extremely important.

One big obstacle the Amazon offers is large storms. With all the rain, it can flood! If it does flood, traveling can be more difficult. There are also venomous animals such as snakes and spiders. People need to be cautious when walking through the vegetation because it is very thick, making it hard to move, as well as being prone to (snakes.http://www.brazil.org.za/amazon-rainforest.html)

3 Ways To Regionalize The Earth

Climate


This is important because the earth has 2 different climate zones. One is called the temperate which is land closer to the equator. The temperate has hot summers and cold winters.


The second is the polar. Just like it sounds, it is cold all year! The main reason is because it is very far away from the equator.

Rain fall

There are places, such as the desert, that barely get any rain fall because they are located near the equator where the air is really dry. Other places get a lot of rain fall, such as the Amazon, because of the wind picking up moisture from the ocean.

Elevation

There are places, such as Mt. McKinley, that offer different elevations above sea level. The different elevations have altitudes with higher or lower amounts of oxygen. When there is more oxygen, green plants will be there, but at higher altitudes, there will be less green plants, a colder climate and possibly snow. This gives a different look to the earth and climate.

3 More Different Places To Visit

Some suggests that we think you should vist that you may injoy are: Hawii , Mt. Everest and Old Faithful. If you liked Mt. McKinley, I am shure that you will love Mt. Everest.
