Canada and its Regions:
Canada is located in the northern part of the North American continent. It extends from the
Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Sea. Canada is also the second
largest continent in the world. It has six total regions, all of which have somewhat different
climates.
Here is the information about each region:
1. The North: This region has a very extreme climate with average winter temperatures at
-18° Fahrenheit. The average summer temperatures being around 45° Fahrenheit. This
area of Canada has mostly tundra and barren ice lands. Due to the waste landish area,
vegetation is very scarce.
2. British Columbia: This region is the western most part of Canada which boarders the
Pacific Ocean. This coastal region has a somewhat warm and rainy climate with
temperatures varying from 65 to 34 degrees Fahrenheit. Since this region has a warmer
climate, the vegetation is more abundant.
3. The West: This region has most of the same features as British Columbia so not really
much to tell about this region.
4. Ontario: This region is located in east-central Canada. It is Canada's most populous
province or territory and fourth largest in total area. Ontario has a high temperature of
about 92° and a low of about 62° Fahrenheit. Being one of the warmer parts of Canada,
this region has more vegetation having almost 70% forest.
5. Quebec and Atlantic Canada: These two regions have mostly the same climate, having
cold winters and moderately warm summers. The two regions are also made up mostly
of forests.
United States
The United States of America are situated mostly in central North America. It extends
from the Atlantic, all the way to the Pacific Ocean and borders with Canada and Mexico.
It has 5 very different regions.
These are the 5 regions of the United States:
1. Northeast: The climate for the northeast region is all different. There are cool to
hot summers and very cold winters. The yearly precipitation for the northeast
region is about 46 inches in a year. That includes rainfall and snowfall. The
average July temperature is 69 degrees F. The average January temperature is
21 degrees F.
2. Southeast: The climate of the Southeast is very warm and wet, with mild
winters and a high humidity percentage, compared to the rest of the
continental United States.
3. Southwest: The Southwestern United States is a semi-arid to arid climate,
depending on the location. Most of the southwest is an arid desert climate, but
higher elevations in the mountains in each state, feature alpine climates with
very large amounts of snow. Depending on where you are in the Southwest
region of the U.S., also depends on the temperatures.
4. West: The western region of the United States is moderately warm in the
summers and sometimes bitter cold in the winter. The higher elevation helps
things like crops grow. This region is also the home of the Rocky Mtn range.
5. Mid-West: This region is moderately dry. Precipitation mainly occurs in late
spring and early summer. Summers are pleasant but winter can be harsh, with
lots of snow and chilly winds. Temperatures within the Midwest can drop down
to -50 degree F.
