Wow! Look at that Flag Counter. Having visitors makes me feel excited because it means that people all over the world have visited and read what I’ve published. I have a lot of flags considering I have only had my blog for four weeks in the Student Blogging Challenge.
In class, we picked one of the visitor flags and researched facts to see how the country compared and contrasted to my country, the United States. I chose France!
America and France have many differences. The population of France is 65,000,000 and the U.S population is 327,000,000. That is quite a difference!
In the U.S the land area is 3,700,000 square miles. Meanwhile, in France, the land area is 210,030. France is smaller than the area of Texas!
If you want to buy something, you will need different money. In the U.S, we use dollars and in France, they use Euros.
Bonjour! That’s how you say hello in French which is the language spoken in France. Although some people speak French in America, like me, the primary language is English.
The U.S capital is, Washington D.C. In France, the capital is Paris. A big difference between the two countries is that they are on different continents. The U.S is in North America, but France is in Europe. The U.S borders The Pacific and the Atlantic Ocean as well as Canada and Mexico. France borders the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic ocean, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, and a lot more.
For the similarities, our flags are the same colors, red, white, and blue. However, we have stars to show the fifty states. Both places attract people from places all over the world. We both have a Statue of Liberty although, the one in the U.S. is the one that attracts the most people.
Fun Fact: the person who designed the Statue of Liberty was from France, and the French people gave us the statue!
Both nations have big rivers running through them. In France, it is this Seine River. In the U.S., the Mississippi River is running through it. Both countries had revolutions, but those took place in history. They both have very famous museums. They also both have a Disneyland.
