Zimbabwe – Countries and Cultures

Beginning

I know I was doing countries already but I think I actually have more knowledge on the countries now. So sit back relax and be ready to learn about Zimbabwe. Ready… Set….Read!!!

The Land and the Climate 

Ok… first we will learn about the land of Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe has lots of flat grasslands,  rocky hills, and  rivers also cover the land. The Zambezi River and the Limpopo River are two of the many. The center region is Highveld. Highveld is like Kansas in the middle of the U.S. Highveld has an elevation of 5,000 feet also [1,500 m]. Highveld holds the countries largest cities.

The climate depends on elevation. The higher it goes the cooler it gets. That gives me a question. Why is it cooler when you climb higher, because if you climb higher you’re closer to the sun? Overall though Zimbabwe has a pretty nice climate.

Population and Language 

Nighty eight percent of population is African. An the other 2 is mostly british and some indian. Some of the largest cities in Zimbabwe are Bulawayo, Mutoko,  Tull, and Harare. Health problems affect lots of the population. Zimbabwe has one of the shortest life expectancies in the world. It is 53! Wow!

English is the official language in Zimbabwe. The other languages are Shona and Ndebele.

Some Words in Shona
