  3. 3. Introduction  I picked Jordan as my country because I love Jordan. I think that you will really like my pages. Especially interesting facts. You could see what page it is in the contents. Well you will really learn something's of my pages. There are several facts in each paragraph. I especially like Geography because you can learn what the tallest mountain is, and you will also know what landforms Jordan has. I hope that you will also enjoy the pictures that I put. Guess what!? Even I leaned a lot while I was doing my research. Now I hope that you will enjoy the rest of my pages.

  6. 6. Geography THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN IN JORDAN IS JABAL UMM AD. JORDAN IS SURROUNDED WITH SYRIA ON THE NORTH SIDE, SAUDI ARABIA ON THE SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST SIDE. ISRAEL AND THE TERRITORY OF PALESTINE ON THE WEST SIDE. JORDAN HAS 3 SEAS: THE RED SEA, THE BLACK SEA AND OF COURSE, THE DEAD SEA. JORDAN HAS ONLY A FEW KINDS OF LANDFORMS. FOR EXAMPLE JORDAN HAS 3 SEAS, IT HAS MOUNTAINS, RIVERS, AND HILLS. JORDAN GOES A FEW MILES OF LAND NEAR THE RED SEA. IT COVERS 35,000SQARE MILES MAKING IT ABOUT THE SIZE OF KENTUCKY IN THE U.S.A. JORDAN CAN BE DIVIDED INTO FOUR GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS, EACH WITH ITS DISTINCTIVE PHYSICAL FEATURES.
  7. 7. Climate in Jordan T H E D R Y S E A S O N I N J O R D A N I S B E T W E E N M A Y A N D O C T O B E R , A N D T H E R A I N F A L L I S I N T H E M A R C H .

CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT IT ONLY RAINS 21 DAYS DURING THE WINTER IN THE DRY SEASON IN JORDAN IS BETWEEN MAY AND OCTOBER, AND THE RAINFALL IS IN THE WINTER FROM NOVEMBER UNTIL MARCH. THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE VARIES FROM SUMMER THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE IS ABOUT 38 C IN THE DEAD SEA. IN AMMAN THE CAPITAL CITY OF JORDAN ITS ABOUT 12 C UNTIL 14 C . IT SOMETIMES EVEN SNOWS THERE. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT IT ONLY RAINS 21 DAYS DURING THE WINTER IN JORDAN? SADLY JORDAN IS SUPPOSED TO RUN OUT OF WATER IN ABOUT 15 YEARS. THAT WHY YOU SHOULD NOT WASTE THE WATER, OTHER COUNTRIES WILL ALSO RUN OUT OF WATER, NOT THAT SOON BUT MAYBE IN ABOUT 100 YEARS. SO, IF YOU CARE ABOUT COUNTRIES THAT MIGHT BECOME A DESERT DO NOT WASTE WATER!
  8. 8. Culture ENGLISH. THE INDEPENDENTS DAY IS ON MAY 25. THE ETHNIC GROUPS ARE THE ARAB, THE BEDOUIN, THE CIRCASSIA'S, THE CHECHENS, AND THE ARMENIANS.

ONLY A FEW KEEP PETS, MOST PEOPLE DRIVE FAST ( ESPECIALLY MEN ). MOST PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE TO EXERCISE. MEN DO NOT LIKE TO WEAR SILK, GOLD, DIAMONDS OR SILVER, THEY THINK THEY ARE MADE FOR ONLY WOMAN.

  9. 9. Economy JORDAN HAS A FEW NATURAL RESOURCES. LAND IS LARGELY TOO DRY FOR RAISING CROPS. STRONG. ITS STARTING TO USE MODERN ECONOMY. JORDAN IS BEGINNING TO SUPPORT AID FROM GREAT BRITTAN AND THE U.S.A. JORDAN'S KING MET OBAMA TO TALK ABOUT MONEY. THE EXPORT OF JORDAN IS: PAPER, CARDBOARD, ALCOHOLIC DRINKS AND OTHER STUFF.

PEOPLE LIVED IN JORDAN FOR ABOUT 200,000 YEARS. JORDAN USED TO BE PART OF PALESTINE. EARLY KINGDOMS INCLUDING AMMAN MOAN AND EDDEM CONTROLLED FROM THE 1200BC. ASSYRIANS BABYLONIANS PERSIANS SELEUCIDS AND THE ROMAN EMPIRE LATER RULED THE REGION. IN THE AD 600S ARAB INVADERS BROUGHT ISLAM TO THE AREA.
  11. 11. Interesting Facts JORDAN HAS THE DEAD SEA WHICH CONTAINS A LOT OF SALT. THE DEAD SEA IS ALSO THE LOWEST POINT ON EARTH. THE SHARP HORNED ORYX A DESERT-LOVING RELATIVE OF DEER AND ANTELOPE, LIVES IN JORDAN. YOU COULD ALSO VISIT MANY NICE AND BEAUTIFUL PLACES. FOR EXAMPLE PETRA, AQUABA, AND OTHER BEAUTIFUL PLACES. JORDAN’S KING IS FROM THE HASHEMITE FAMILY, WHICH DESCENDS DIRECTLY FROM THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD. KING ABDULLAH OFTEN LIVED IN A TENT EVEN AFTER THE PALACE WAS BUILD FOR HIM. KING HUSSEIN'S FOURTH WIFE, QUEEN NOOR WAS AN AMERICAN.
  12. 12. Conclusion JORDAN IS A PRETTY AWESOME COUNTRY. JORDAN CAN BE REALLY INTERESTING IN HISTORY, CULTURE, CLIMATE, AND LOTS OF OTHER STUFF. I LEARNED A LOT ABOUT GEOGRAPHY, CLIMATE, AND A LOT ABOUT OTHER STUFF. I AM ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IN GEOGRAPHY. I LEARNED THAT JORDAN HAS ONLY A FEW LANDFORMS. THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN IN JORDAN IS JABAL UMM AD. FROM CLIMATE I LEARNED THAT JORDAN IS ONE OF THE DRIEST COUNTRIES ON EARTH. IN CULTURE I LEARNED THAT THERE ARE MANY ETHNIC GROUPS FOR EXAMPLE THE BEDOUIN THE ARMENIANS AND A LOT OF OTHER GROUPS. IT’S PRETTY COOL TO STUDY SOCIAL STUDIES FOR ME. YOU SHOULD TRY IT SOME TIME.
