Brooklyn's speech about the U.S.A
Here is Brooklyn's speech about her chosen country the United States of America. Listen as she shares with you lots of interesting information she has found out about this country.
Good morning Room 9. Today I'm going to talk to you about the USA. USA stands for the United States of America. The United States of America is made up of 50 states. These states are represented by 50 stars on the American flag. The American flag is blue, red and white. It has nicknames like stars and stripes, Old Glory and Star spangled banner which is also the name of the national anthem. There are many tourist attractions in the U.S.A. Here are some popular ones. The White House (this is where the president lives and works), Las Vegas (where you find lots of casinos), Niagra Falls (one of the most popular attractions), Manhattan in New York (where you can find the Statue of Liberty), and the Empire State Building. Here are some facts abou tthe United States of America. The population is 312, 303, 000 people. The President is Barack Obama, he is the first African American to become president. The capital of the U.S.A is Washington DC. Their national bird is the bald eagle and their national flower is the rose. Next month, I am going to America with my family. We are going to Disneyland! I can't wait to meet my favourite characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse and go on all the rides. Thank yo for listening to my speech. I hope you all enjoyed it and learnt something about the United States of America.
