The UK has a background story on how each the countries formed the UK . Wales was joined with the England due to the Acts of Union in 1536 , and that’s why they say that’s the date that the UK was founded . I’m 1600 that’s when Ireland came  along , and they joined through the Acts of union also . Nine countries from Ireland was still apart of the UK so that’s why they got the name The UK of Northern Ireland . Then in the 20th century they were officially apart of the UK. In the UK , the prime minister leads the government with the support of  the cabinet and ministers . Also the head of the state is Queen Elizabeth II .The UK has a lot of wars they went through they had ” The Wars of the Three Kings ” , ” The English Civil War ” , ” Battle of Agincourt ” , ” Wars of Scottish Independence ” , ” Third English civil war ” , ” Cromwelliam conquest of Ireland ” , ” First Anglo Dutch war ” and finally the ” First Anglo Dutch war ” . The first prime minister of the UK was Sir Robert Walepole . He served twice as the prime minister of the United Kingdom . He was the prime minister from 1721 – 1742 . He was chancellor of the exchequer for about the same time . They had a lot of inventions that they invented such as the magnifying glass in 1250 . The person who invented that his name was Roger Bacon. Another cool invention is the telephone that was invented in 1876 and the person was Alexander Graham Bell. The important invention to me was the television which was invented in 1926 and the inventor was John logie Baird . Those were just some achievements that I thought were the most important . The UK has some key events that were really important like in 1914 , world war 1 outbreak , UK hostilities against Germany . Also another important event was in 2005 when London had about 52 people died and 700 were injured because of a bomb . A lot of people were really hurt & place were destroyed. Fun  Fact  :  Another  cool  thing  is  the  cars  are  so  cute  .  The  cars  are  mostly  small . They  also  drive  on  the  left  side  of  the  road  .Fun Fact :  England has the oldest Zoo in the world .Fun Fact : The Union Jack or union flag is the national flag of the UK. It consists of a symmetric Red Cross on a white field with the union flag in the canton .My  First  exciting  thing  about  the  UK  is  Food .  I  would   love   the   food  because  I  love  to  eat  their  popular dish is  fish  and  chips  which  is  my favorite . British  people  have  been  eating  fish  &  chips  since  the  19th  century .  They  have  a  lot  of  different  foods  like  different  flavor  stews  ,  sauces  ,   lamb  ,  Chinese  ,  pizza .  England  is  known  for  their  island  cuisine .  The  best  UK  comfort  food  is  the  roast  dinners  and  I’m pretty  sure  it’s  great .  For  the  beverages  part  in  England  they  are  huge  tea drinkers and  the  most  popular  teas  are  oolong  ,  earl grey tea  ,  Darjeeling  ,  the  breakfast  tea  and  finally  green tea .   The  best  desserts  are so  good  looking  that  I  wanna  try  all  them  like  the  orange  fool  &  mulava  pudding . The  food  is  pretty  normal  foods  not  much  sure  it’s  great .  Children  over  the  age  of  5  are  allowed  to  drink  alcohol .  The  best  desserts  are  so  good  looking  that  I  wanna  try  all  them  like  the  orange  fool  &  mulava  pudding .  The  food  is  pretty  normal  foods  not  much   changes  and  the  drinks  are  to.The UK has a totally different arrangement on how they do there education compared to the US . They  have  4 groups  of  different  levels  depending  on  your  age  .  You  can  start  at  5  years  old  and  it  ends  at  the age  of  16  years  old  .  It’s  different  levels  of  work  in  the  UK  ,  and  the  levels  get  harder  and  harder as  you  get  older  .  The  different  groups  are  Primary  education  ( 5-7)  the  primary  stage  just introduces  you  to  what  your  going  to  be  doing  .   Secondary  education  ( 7-11)  is  just  a  more work  maybe  a  little  harder .  Further  education  ( 11 – 14)  if  you  don’t  want  to  take  the  Further group  you  don’t  have  to  you  can  move  to  something  else  but  if   you   plan  on  going  to  college  you have  to .   An  the  last  one  is  Higher  Education  ( 14 – 16)  this  is  the  most  important  group  out  of all  the  groups  &  doing  the  higher  education  you  will  enter  the  most  highest  education in  the  UK  . In the UK most of the school or funded by the government .  All boys & girl must attend full time time education until they turn 16 years old . In England and Wales there education is between the ages  5- 18 . I absolutely love the United Kingdom for the simple fact of it’s so unique & different from  the unique .  The UK is like a beautiful place to visit .  To  start  it  off  the  food  is  great and  i love fish and chips . I  love  seeing  what people do  in  different  places  and see how they do things .  This was a great thing to do so i could learn more about the country . I know I would enjoy myself if I were to go there and venture there . this couThe Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica. “Act of Union.” Encyclopædia Britannica, Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., 3 June 2016, www.britannica.com/event/Act-of-Union-Great-Britain-1707. ntry .
