I am proud to be an Arizonan because I can go swimming a lot! I can prove that because it is HOT! I can have lots of water fights. I love it.
Then, I can go scorpion hunting. There are a lot of scorpions especially at night. It does not rain (mostly). That is why I can hunt for scorpions.
Next, there is a lot of history, like Tombstone and Tucson. My class gets AZ Weekly Reader newspapers. I love history. I have been to Tombstone. I love Arizona history.
