Poland - Geography Report - First Draft

This is my first draft for my report on Poland. I have a list of questions to answer and when I have done this, I will need to make the whole report flow.

Did you know that the name Poland comes from the tribe polanie which means people living in open fields?

Poland is located in Europe, next to Germany on the right side towards the top. Poland is 312,679 km² big. They had 38.53 million people in 2013.   Australia has 23 million and is 7 million km² . That means that you could fit Poland into Australia nearly 23 times.

The official language spoken in Poland is Polish.  They also speak Russian, Vietnamese, Arabic, Greek, Chinese, Bulgarian, Turkish and Hindi.

The government is a democracy. THIS MEANS

The flag has a white eagle which is the national animal. The white eagle is from a tale of the Slavic leaders a long time ago who set out to find where their people should live. The Polish people liked the white eagle. 

They use the polish złoty. It looks like this.

There traditional food include  smoked cheese called Oscypek and   white sausage called Biała kiełbasa.

This is a picture of the smoked cheeses.

In Poland they have a festival called Constitution Day. The constitution in 1791 only lasted a year. In November 1918 Poland got its independence, but they still celebrate it. 
If you go to Poland it's suggested to go to the main market square of ??????.

Morgan - great first draft and lots of information gathered. Well done.

pop over and check the Australia one we did together for more clues.
