Interesting factsHawaii is the only state that grows coffee.In the 1960's astronauts were trained for missions by walking on Mauna Loa's hardened lava surface because it looked like the moons surface. Ancient Hawaiians belived that heavier women were more attractive. Every year Hawaii moves 3-5 inches closer to Japan. Hawaii's state fish is the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa. There 124 smaller islands in Hawaii. The Hawaiian alphabet only has 13 letters.

Features of HawaiiHawaii is known to be one of the most visited vacation spots in the world. That is because of the beautiful plants growing, and the amazing attractions. For example Panaewa Rainforest Zoo. The Mauna Loa is also a very visited spot, but the fun doesn't end there! There are seven more islands to go to and visit.

How Hawaii DelvopedHawaii is here because of what is called a "hot spot", this hot spot was found in the pacific ocean. A hot spot is where magma rises from the ground, and soon erupt, but because it was underwater, the lava would just harden and begin to build up and up over many years. Soon the hardened magma began to build up, soon it reached surface level after thousands of years. So that is how the islands of Hawaii formed.
