Visitor's log

Page history last edited by atsar 6 years, 5 months ago

  Welcome to our Visitor's log! 

 

 

 

We have created this page to help us learn a little bit about the visitors who come to our site.   The students have picked a country, uploaded the flag of that country,  and then researched some fun facts about each country to include on this site.  We welcome you all and look forward to learning about more countries.  WE got most of our information for this page at http://en.wikipedia.org or this page at the travel blog. WE also used this site to check our facts.  Find (at least) these facts to post:

1. What climate type is your country and what continent is it located on?

2.What is the capital and what language is spoken? 

3. A fun fact or 2 or 3 about the country's culture

4. A fun fact or 2 or 3 about the country's history

then upload the flag and post. Remember to use your own words, then make a link to another page in case someone wants more information.
