The United States of America is made up of fifty different
states. Some of the states, like Texas and California, are quite large.
Other states like Rhode Island and Delaware, are very small. Two states
are further away than the main forty-eight states. Hawaii is made up of
several islands in the Pacific Ocean. Alaska is further north and next
to another country called Canada. The United States also has some territories
that are further away from it, such as the island of Guam and Puerto Rico.
The different states are all very unique. Some are warm and sunny most
of the year, and others are cold. All of the states have their own unique
culture and characteristics, but are part of the same country.
