Class I D
This year we studied the United Kingdom.
Our teacher' s presentation
The UK is made up of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.Great Britain is made up of England, Wales and Scotland.
The UK is between the North Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea, and it is separated by northwest coast of France by the English Channel. The Channel Tunnel, beneath the English Channel, now links the UK with France.
The UK Landscape is very varied. Scotland and Wales are the most mountainous parts of the UK. The Pennine, runs down the centre of northern England, but most of the UK is made up of hills.
The Uk's climate is very changeable because of the surrounding sea. The main influence on British climate is the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, the northern latitude, and the warming of the waters around the land by the Gulf Stream (a warm current of the northern Atlantic Ocean).
In general there are warm summers and cool winters. However, summers are cooler than those on the continent and winters are milder.
