Sports in America <ul><li>In America the most popular sports are basketball, football, and soccer. Basketball is a game of 10-15 players who run up and down to hard wood and polished court to put an orange ball into the opposing team's basket, to score points.The team with the most sports in the end wins. They wear jerseys that are made of mesh, a kind of material sport uniforms are made out of. There is a picture of a Los Angeles Laker's player in a uniform. Football is a rough and tough sport where big men tackle eachother to get the football for their team, then they run to the opposing team's touchdown zone, where if they pass a certain line on the field they win points for their team. There are around 32 teams in the NFL, National Football League. They also wear mesh jerseys, but helmets are required when they play because football is an easy sport to get hurt in. The helmets are worn for protection. Soccer is played on a field of grass. There are 11 players out on the field players pass the ball to each other to try to getr the ball into the goal to get points. Players wear knee pads, high socks, and cleats are the type of shoe worn for protection. Games usually last up 2 hours. </li></ul>

How is our country ruled? Made by McKenna Hummel & Hannah Thompson, Discovery Middle School, Indiana Anders Lund & Erik Holst, Vonsild School, Denmark
In America In America, we are a democracy. We have one primary “ruler” though,they are known as our president. The president is elected every four years, and can be elected two terms in a row. The people vote on who they want to be president, based on who is running for office. The person who has the most votes, becomes president. How ever, to run for president you have to have certain qualifications, such as being born in the United States, being 35 or older, and has been a resident in the United States for more than fourteen years. Next in power, is the vice president. The president and vice president, make the final decisions for our country, but are helped by many other people.
The President of the United States of America: Barack Obama.
In Denmark In Denmark we have a Prime Minister and a Queen. The Prime Minister is called Lars Lokke Rasmussen and the Queen Margrethe the second.
