The Russian Flag
Russia is one of the largest countries in the world

size of the United States. from the east to the west coast
the country stretches out over 6,000 miles. To the north
of the country is the Artic Ocean. in the south it meets
China and Iran. In the west it meets the Baltic Ocean
and in the east it meets the pacific ocean.
The northern part of Russia is covered in
tundra. The soil that the tundra has is not very good.
The only plant life on the tundra is moss and shrubs.
There are only a few animals that can survive in that
environment they are : Arctic foxes, reindeer, and polar
bears. On the other side of the tundra are big forests and
other trees. Brown bears, wolves, and lynxes can live in
that kind of environment. Some fruit and wheat can
grow in the warm months.
Moscow is Russia's capitol. This is the largest and
most important city in Russia. Moscow River flows
through the city. In the middle of Kremlin is a old
fortress. It also was a church, government building,
and a palace. Around that city is a place called Red
Square. Parades are usually taken place in Red Square.
Russia has a lot of natural resources. Most of the
forests are found in Russia. Russia makes paper,
furniture, toys, and coal. It also has large supplies of oil,
and natural gases. There are also iron, gold, silver, and
In Russia most people rent and live in apartments.
These apartments only have two rooms. Most of the
people share their houses with another family. Most
people use public transportation to get from place to
place. The people who don't use public transportation
have their own car.
In Russia their rule for education is that you start
when your 7 years old and go to school for 11 years.

In Russia very few people are farmers, other
people work in offices, shops, and in factories. Ten
percent of Russia is used for farming. There are many
factories in Russia, there range of making things is
from textiles to steel machinery.
Russia's most leading foods are potatoes. Since
food is limited in Russia, many people have to stand in
long lines while they wait for the food that they need for
them and their families. For breakfast many people
eat bread, butter, and sometimes jam. For lunch most
people eat soup with bread, and for dinner they mainly
eat fish. Adults usually drink tea and children drink milk.
When your in Russia you have to wait in many long
lines just to get one thing. That's because they have
shortages. Russia is working harder to help increase
there supplies that families need.

live in the United States!
