3: France does not have a constant temperature throughout the whole country. France’s climate consists of cool winters and mild summers in the Metropolitan region in France. However, the Mediterranean region has mild winters and hot summers. Paris, the most populated city, has an average temperature in January of 36 degrees Fahrenheit and an average temperature in July of 77 degrees Fahrenheit. The oceanic region climate has a small temperature range, ample rainfall, and cool winters and summers. The food grown in these three areas would be specific to the climate to fit its needs. | Climate

4: Agriculture is important to every country and it just so happens to be a vital sector of France’s economy. As of 1998, over one third of France’s area was arable and France is completely self sufficient in basic food production. France farms export more agricultural food products than any other European nation. The main agricultural products are wheat, sugar, wine, and beef. In 1999, the wheat crop totaled 3,7009,000. Oregano, Rosemary, and Thyme are native spices to France. France is one of the leading producers of thyme | Agriculture | By: Morgan Halsey

6: Throughout the country, France has a very different geography. It’s varied topography consists of flat plains and low, rolling hills in the north and west. The rest of the country is quite mountainous. The Pyrenees mountain range is located in the south and the Alps mountain range is located in the east. Food that grows on flat plains would be grown in the north and west and food that grows in the mountains would be grown in the Pyrenees or Alps in the south and east. | Geography

11: In 51BC, the Romans had conquered France. The Gauls who were living there before the Romans had taken over had chosen to adopt the Romans’ customs, language and laws. This is an explanation for why Roman Catholicism is the major religion of France. Therefore the French culture was born from Roman contributions. | History

19: A current problem is France is their French cultural identity. The French cultural identity has been threatened by global markets and by American “cultural hegemony.” France has been fighting for exception culturelle. Exception culturelle is the right to subsidize or treat favorably domestic cultural production and limit or control foreign cultural products. This problem has greatly aggravated France’s critics. | Article
