Minnesota may be the land of 10,000 lakes, but did you know that if you just simply Google: “how many lakes are there in Michigan?” Your answer will be more than 11,000 lakes. Michigan used to be known as the wolverine state, because we had wolverines. Now, since there are no more wolverines, Michigan is simply known as the Great Lakes State. Michigan has a lot of fresh water; it is in our lakes, rivers, and any other wet piece of land that is here. This paper looks at the fresh waters of the Great Lakes State: glaciers, rivers, and people. All of these factors contributed to the shape of this state in one way or another. This paper will show how these factors shaped Michigan into the state it is today.
For two days, on the 14th and 15th of April, a field excursion to Hastings Point, New South Wales was conducted. At Hastings Point, topography, abiotic factors and organism distribution were measured and recorded, with the aim of drawing links between the abiotic factors of two ecosystems (rocky shore and sand dunes), the organisms which live in them, and the adaptations they have developed to cope with these conditions. Within these two ecosystems, multiple zones were identified and recorded, and this report also aims to identify the factors and organisms associated with each zone. Lastly, using data and observations from the past, predictions for the future of the rock pool ecosystem were made.

While I am visiting the beach in Florida I will experience the 5 different senses, taste, smell, touch, see, and hear.
In the NY Times article “Why the Beach Is a Bummer,” Roxane Gay exploits the beach and the ways it never actually lives up to the expectation many have when summer comes around. Gay speaks of her childhood on the beaches of Haiti and how beautiful it was, but how different it is in the United States because there's such a high expectation for the beach since many areas aren’t surrounded by them. “The beach becomes a kind of utopia — the place where all our dreams come true”(Gay), meaning the beach becomes romanticized by so many when in reality there’s just sand in places where it doesn't belong whether in your book or on your body. Gay expresses how soon after arriving at the beach boredom approaches from having nothing to do besides
