United Kingdom

By: Leah Tucker and Bradleya Walls

Climate, Geography, and Land

The United Kingdom is about the same size as Oregon (United States), surrounded by many bodies of water. Such as the Irish Sea, the North Sea, and the English Channel. In fact, Northern Ireland looses 714 acres of land every year due to erosion. Also, the weather is temperate and wet, helping support the concept of the UK getting "tons of rain".

Culture (Clothes, Religion, Food)

The United Kingdom is mostly full of Christians, though 44% of Ireland is Catholic. Also, the UK dresses in much the same way as the United States. Although on ceremonial occasions, they wear things that relate closely to Europe. As an example, British grooms wear a hat when getting married, and Wale women wear the traditional costume ( a tall black hat, white blouse, checked wool skirt, and red flannel shawl) on ceremonial occasions. They usually eat foods close to Americans, but have a good bit tucked under their sleeves. The UK has Haggis', which is ground sheep entrails mixed with oats and spices, Irish Stew, and Bara Brith, which is Welsh bread.
