Hawaii: The Islands Of Aloha
The capital of Hawaii is Honolulu. It has no neighboring states, because it is a series of 8 islands. Hawaii's islands are in the North Pacific Ocean. "Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono" is Hawaii's state motto . It means "The Life of the Land is Perpetuated in Righteousness." Hawaii's state nickname is The Islands of Aloha. Hawaii became a state on the 21st of August in 1959. It was also the 50th state to enter the Union.
There are lots of cool plants and trees in Hawaii. There is the coffee tree, the cinnamon tree, and the java plum. Also, there is the beautiful Hawaiian orchid. There is more variety of plants than anywhere else in the world. Also, there is a great amount of ferns and moss in the rainforests as well.

Bruno Mars
state seal
He was born as Peter Gene Hernandez on October 8th, 1985 in Waikiki. He grew up in a musical household and started performing as early as 4 years old. His most popular songs include "Just the Way You Are" and "Grenade". Both songs are among the best-selling singles of all time, and have sold over 10 million copies each worldwide.
There are lots of different types of animals in Hawaii.
Some of the marine animals are the humpback, sperm, and pilot whales, green sea turtle, bottlenose and spotted dolphins, and false killer whales. There is also the Hawaiian monk seal, which is one of the most endangered animals on the planet. There are not lots of land animals, but there are exotic fish . There are birds such as the Scarlet Hawaiian honeycreeper, the Pueo (a short-eared owl), and various seabirds, such as the albatross. Geckos and chameleons are just some of the cold blooded reptiles commonly seen in Hawaii's gardens, forests, and jungles.
There are more than 5,800 known insects in Hawaii. Some of the insects are very strange. My favorites are the Lesser Brown Scorpion, the Hawaiian Reduviidae (beetle), the Nesticodes rufipes (spider), and the Habronattus pyrrithrix (spider).
Since the islands of Hawaii are made up completely of volcanic material, they do not have the typical natural resources found in other U.S. states.

Hawaii does export some natural resources such as pineapples, sugar and flowers, it's principle industry is tourism. This is possible because of it's unique natural beauty having rain forests, volcanic activity, tropical climate, beautiful flora and fauna, deep ocean waters, and shoreline.

Good Bye!
Thank you for watching.
The Hawaiian Islands were developed 25 million years ago by volcanoes.
Between the years of 300 A.D. and 900 A.D. , Polynesians from the Marquesas Islands and Tahiti lived on some of the Hawaiian Islands.
The first Europeans to look at the beautiful Islands of Hawaii was Captain James Cook and his wonderful crew in 1778.
One Island ruler, Kamehameha the first,took over the Islands in a 10 year war (1782-1792) and by 1810, he ruled all of the main Islands.
Missionaries arrived in 1820, all the way from New England.
In the 1800s sugarcane plantations were started and people from Asia were brought to work on them.
Queen Liliuokalanai was dethroned in 1893, and not long after that, the republic of Hawaii was produced.
After World War 2 Hawaii became a popular vacation spot.
Hawaii became a state on the 21st of August 1959.
After Hawaii became a state, the government put the 50th star on the flag of the United States in 1960.
