I love living in San Diego if you’ve never been here then when you have a chance enjoy it as much as you can. San Diego is very hot and sunny, it barely ever rains. But that’s the problem we are in a drought.

We’re very close to the ocean, and as I said it’s sunny. So going to the beach and going in the ocean is really fun! We have a lot of canyons. So I like to ride my bike in the canyon with my dad.

San Diego has a lot of places to go if you want to swim. San Diego is a main tourist attraction. in summer we have a lot of people because summer is the nicest and hottest season. We have a lot of people living in San Diego there is 1.338 million people that live in San Diego.

I love San Diego and I feel lucky that I get to live in San Diego.

Cleaning up San Diego

Welcome from San Diego! We are writing a post about the San Diego beaches and how dirty they can get. Pollution, including trash, is killing or hurting animals in the ocean. That’s why we need to help to clean it up!

Guess how much trash we find on the beach each year? Fifteen thousand pounds worth of trash! If people keep trashing our beaches, it will harm the environment and animals. The most common trash we find are cigarette buds. Can you believe that!  We don’t want trash to get into the ocean and hurt animals. We want our ocean and beaches clean. Don’t you agree?
We have lots of organizations that organize beach clean ups in San Diego. They organize these clean ups to make our beaches cleaner and safer. I Love a Clean San Diego is an organization that, “Provides environmental educational events and programs for local residents.” They are hosting the Creek to Bay Cleanup  Saturday, April 27th. Volunteers will remove trash from San Diego’s beaches, waterways, canyons, and parks. Here’s a video another event called Coastal Clean Up. So, what are you waiting for? Go and help the beach! It does not matter how old or how young you are. We do this for the people and animals at the beach. Kids have fun cleaning the beach. So come and help!!!

Where we live

Welcome to our class blog. We live in The United States of America in San Diego, California. We live in a large city on the west coast closest to the Pacific Ocean. Our weather is great here and so we get a lot of sunshine. We have a lot of beaches. We don’t ever get snow because it’s far too warm. The last time we ever had snow was about 52 years ago. That’s a long time ago huh!

Our school is located in a community called University City or UC for short. It’s called that because we are really close to a big university. There are mostly houses in our community, a couple grocery stores, and few  restaurants including a Mexican place, an Italian place, and a sushi place. We also have a frozen yogurt store…which we LOVE!

Our school is a pretty small school. We have about 600 students in our school. We have six grade levels from kindergarten through fifth grade. Many of the students live either in UC or close by in another community called Clairemont.

Check out the slideshow we made.

How is our community like yours? How is your community different?
