Arizona

Hola! We are full day Kindergarten class from Avondale, Arizona. Avondale is located in the Phoenix-metro area, just southwest of Phoenix. Our city is located in the Sonoran Desert so it gets pretty hot here. In 2003, as of October 20, we have had 126 days where the temperature reached over 100. Twice this summer we reached 116 and so far we have set 40 heat related records. The desert is home to a lot of interesting wildlife including the Saguaro cactus which takes 50-100 years to grow just one arm! Arizona is also home to 23 reservations and 21 different Native American tribes.
