Florida Report



Florida
Hello, this is Ben a reporter from Florida. Come stay at Miami Beach, either swimming in our warm coastal water or relaxing in the southern sun. We are just south of Georgia in the south east part of the country. Florida became a state in 1845. Ponce de Leon was famous for discovering Florida in 1513. Also the Spanish established the regions first permanent settlement in 1565. In 1926 Florida’s economy crashed and it was a major blow to the state’s reputation. Eventually, Florida launched the first ever satellite from Cape Canaveral to orbit earth in 1958. A few years after the satellite was launched Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon in 1969. Florida is home to about 15.9 million people! It also has a total area of 65,578 square miles. These are some special and interesting facts about Florida. This and more you can find out by talking to a Florida geographer or historian. This is Ben the reporter, signing out.

The largest lake in Florida is Lake Okeechobee. It has miles of beaches, warm coastal waters, and thousands of islands, including the fact that it has one of the longest coast lines in the country.
