Making School Fun: France

This week we studied countries that colonized the New World. One of our exercises was to make a poster about one of these countries: Spain, Portugal, England, France.  I chose France because it's on my blog page views list and I don't know much about it.

Here is France's Flag

It is across the English Channel from The United Kingdom and is bordered by Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Italy and Spain. There are a lot of countries close together in Europe!

The population of France is around 66,000,000 people.

The one thing I do know about France is the Eiffel Tower. It is over 1000 feet tall and was finished being built in 1889. It is really cool engineering.

Here is a great link for information on it.

France is famous for painting, wine and cooking. In Transformers 2, Sam's mom goes all the way to France just to eat snails! She thought they were gross. France is famous for mimes too. I really like mimes. I want to be one. I practice all the time.

France sent explorers to North America and made settlements in Canada. Some parts of Canada still speak only French. I would really love to visit there.

My great great great great great Grandfather Dameron came from France to live in Virginia. His two sons fought on each side of the Civil War.
