1 France Mrs. Young

2 Colonies France was colonized by the Greeks and the Romans and Germans. Later, they established colonies in Polynesia, the Indian Ocean, Caribean, off the western coast of Mexico, within and off the eastern coast of Africa, and Antarctica. They consider July 14th their independence day when they overthrew the monarchy. (“France” Wikipedia).

3 Government The government of France is “a unitary semi- presidential republic” (“France” Wikipedia). This means the single national government has a higher power than the states and that they have both a president and a prime minister. They have democratic elections (“Semi-Presidential System” & “Unitary State”)

4 Language French 100% (“France” The World Factbook) Developed from Latin spoken by the Romans (“France” Wikipedia)

5 Food Known for very good wine. “Although French cuisine has a reputation as a grand national feature, regional differences are marked. Some local dishes have achieved international fame, even if they are often poorly imitated. Among these are the seafood soup, bouillabaisse, from Marseille; andouillette, a form of sausage from Lyon; choucroute, pickled cabbage from Alsace; and magret de canard, slices of breast of duck from Bordeaux. France is also renowned for the range and quality of its cheeses” (“France” Britannica)French cuisinebouillabaisse

7 France is known for haute couture or high fashion. Some samples and famous people (“French Style”) Clothing

8 Religion ”Religions: Roman Catholic 83%-88%, Protestant 2%, Jewish 1%, Muslim 5%-10%, unaffiliated 4%” (“France” The World Factbook) “[C]ycling, swimming, football (soccer), skiing, tennis, boules (pétanque), and, increasingly, golf, basketball, and martial arts [are] the most popular activities” (“France” Britannica) Sport

9 Impressions France seems to be an old culture with a modern, sophisticated view of the future. It has a long history and has influenced other countries around the world. But I think the French want to be cool with their fancy food and clothing. I think the French are proud people.
