This is my third year to participate in the GRA experience. We are a class of 9 and 10 year olds. We are located in Houston, Texas. Houston is the 4th most populated city in the nation and is the largest in the southern USA and Texas. It was founded in 1836. We are located near Galveston, which a coastal city in the Gulf of Mexico. We are 43 feet above sea level. It is a large metropolis that extending to Galveston Bay. Space Houston is located nearby, which has the visitor center NASA where the astronauts train and flight control is located there. We have a theater district located near downtown. The outer areas of Houston are made up of smaller communities called suburbs. We are home to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. We are a city that enjoys our sports teams, such as, Houston Texans (football), Astro’s (baseball), Rockets (basketball), and Dynamos (soccer). We are looking forward to reading Fish in a Tree and making connections around the world.
