Thinking about the chapter you just read (Chapter 11), what are some differences about Middle Amerca, The caribbean and South America. Write 3 paragraph explaining the differences and similarities of each. Make sure to have an introduction, a body (your three regions of latin america) and conclusion (wrapping it all up).

The three reigons of latin america.The carribean,South america and mexico/central america.They are all different in many ways but in some the same.Latin america is unique this is why:
South America is the biggest,it is it`s own continent.South America ids different i think because of the size and the andes mountins.Because of this they can live up in the colder place of the mountin so it`s not always hot.The carribean is unlike the other reigons in many ways.First that they are obviously islands.The carribean islands are made up of coral islands(skeletons of sea animals) and the top of underr water mountins and volcanoes.Also in the carribean their is lots of plants that grow such as bananas,pineapples,plaktanoes,passion fruit and many others,Their is dense vegetation.in Mexico/Central america this is one unique thing, a plateu.the plateu is were most of the mexican people live although the travel is dificult.In mexico, alot of people eat rice and beans,also mexico is famous for hot chili peppers.
That is why all reigons are different,even though they are all together.Latin america is made up of alot of different things,it is a good place for a vacation.

THIS IS BROCK'S POST. NOT BRANDON'S

Post  brockhay on Tue Apr 20, 2010 7:13 pm

Latin America is a HUGE place, think about it, it covers more than an entire continent! Its among the largest cultural regions in the world. Every body thinks that means that everything there is the same, well then your wrong and I'm right and this is why.
Latin America has three regions; Mexico and Central America, South America, and the Caribean. The climate is diffrent, for example in southern South America, it has summer and winter like North America, just different months for the seasons. A lot of people didn't know that huh. The vegetation is different, and different crops are grown. For example, the DR grows their famous chinola, and Cuba grows it's famous coffee. Their is also different history in countries which means different traditions. In Mexico (another example) there is a very interesting history of their courage and culture. When they fought to keep their land.
So the main differences basicly are vegetation, history, and climate. They aren't all just spanish speaking people with a terrible economy. Well, the economy part is true, but I still care about them because they invented nachos and salsa! Evil or Very Mad

Simmilarities/Differences of The Three Regions in Latin America

Post  mariaelena3709 on Wed Apr 21, 2010 3:44 pm

This small essay will tell you more about the three regions of Latin America. Latin America includes Middle America, the Caribbean, and of course South America. You may think that they are alike in every way since they are pretty close together. Well, yes, they are alike. But only in some ways...
The temperatures of the three regions are quite humid and subtropical. In that way they are similar. All of the reagions differ in what they grow. South America includes Brazil, and Brazil is famous for its coffee crops. Latin America shares its richness in wood... mahogany.
Simmilarities and differences occur everywhere around the world, and even though countries are close together like these three regions, they don't share the exact same characteristics. Crops differ, culture differs, and most of all landforms differ. Then again, most of the countries included in Latin America belong to the same religion. Where we live, there is not much that makes us original from the other Caribbean Islands, but i'm sure there is something unique about us... right?

Ch.11 essay

Post  PJ on Thu Apr 22, 2010 4:43 pm

The three sub-headings are Middle America, the Caribbean, and last but not least South America. The Physical geography in these three sub-headings are different. But there are some similarities among these cultures, such as there landscape and what the earth can produce.
Mexico is a treasure chest of minerals but not the culture. Some examples are silver, gold, copper, coal, and iron ore but the cultures are slightly different like the soil is not as good as the Caribbean’s. The Caribbean countries also have very rich soil and climate for crops and the farmers. South America and Mexico are rich in minerals and natural resources. South America has gold, copper, tin, bauxite, and iron ore. In South America have plants and fish as natural resources.

Chapter 11 Essay

Post  Ana09Martinez on Thu Apr 22, 2010 4:57 pm

Chapter 11 is about the three regions which are South America, Central America/Mexico, and the Caribbean. The Caribbean is made up of coral, or tiny animal skeletons. It has many vegetations, and it is a very tropical place. The climate is humid, and tropical. Perfect for tourists.

South America has it's own continent, and is the biggest one of all three regions. The Andes mountains are found in this region. It has rocky mountains, and grassy plains. The Amazon Basin/River is also part of South America. The Amazon Basin is very important because most of S.A's vegetation is found there,and because the Amazon River is the second largest river in the world. This river also is a great source of water and hydroelectricity. That's how many people get their electicity, because of this river.

Central America is very interesting because it has many cultures. I belive either the Incans, or the Aztecs used to live there, but I'm not sure. Many Mexicans live on a plateu. These are what make the three regions different from each other. One thing that makes them similar to each other is that they are good tourist attractions.

Chapter 11 is mostly about latin America, the caribbean and central america. In section 2 of this chapter talks about how the caribbean islands are made. Like the small islands are made of tiny animal skeletons and the bigger island are made of top of underwater mountains. And how elevation affects the climate.
In the other section it speaks mainly of south america like Brazil because its a coffee key crop and because of the Amazon river and the Amazon forest. The Amazon river is the second largest river in the world thats why it is really important. And because it goes from Peru to Brazil all across south america. So its like the main hydroelectic power of south America.
Jamaicas one of the leading producers of bauxite. It is small but it has alot of bauxite. The pampas of Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay have a climate most like the Grate plains of the United States. The highest lake in the world on which ships can travel is the titicaca. So thats what i learned.

This paragraph makes me think how ifferent the two countries are, although many people think they are the same. In Nevada, it's very dry, although it's not a desert, with smal scrub covering the state. alien cat monkey pig affraid confused bounce rabbit Basketball cheers bom sunny Sleep drunken albino cherry santa king farao rendeer queen jocolor geek elephant study scratch flower afro lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! ☺️♥️♦️♣️♠️•◘○◙♂♀♪♫☼►◄↕️‼️¶§▬↨↑↓→←∟↔️▲▼

The three regions, Middle America, South America and the Caribbean, have a lot of differences. The climate is one of those because in the south America there is hot, rainy, humid, cold and dry. In the Caribbean the most time during the year it's hot and sometimes raining. In the Central America there are some mountains where in the top is cold, then the central America is very dry and there is hot all the year long. In the central America there is the plateau, that is a large raised areo of mostly level land between two mountains. The caribbean is composed by different islands that are formed by skeletons of tiny animals, active volcanoes and tops of underwater mountains. In teh Caribbean there are sometimes hurricanes, earthquakes and tropical storms except tornadoes. In the south America is locate the largest rain forest, and in it the second longest river in the world the Amazon river, because it has a lot of tributaries that are short river that mix with it. The Amazon river carries 20% of all the fresh river water on earth. So the most important differences are vegetation, climate and history.
