I know a lot about the Midwest. It is so interesting with fun facts all over! In the Midwest there tons and tons of good farming ground everywhere. It also has lots of cool places to visit like Chicago, Mount Rushmore, and a bunch of national parks.
Do you know why the Midwest has awesome farming ground? It is because thousands of years ago huge glaciers melted into the soil and made it good farming ground. The Midwest people are happy to live here because they have good spots to farm their crops and make a living. This is also how people have good trading posts. The Midwest has a good place for buissnesses because there are the great lakes there and people use boats to bring cargo to the places that need it. They also made continental railroads that went all over the U.S. These trains also helped them bring their items around.
What I want to know is how did people think of making all these transportation devices to make their lives easier? I wonder how the badlands in South Dakota were formed. And how was it even possible to make a living in the Midwest when people had nothing but sod houses and somehow they turned it in to the great city Chicago and other cool cities in the Midwest!
