Landforms in Central America are mountains, coastal plains, rain forest. Coffee is grown in the mountains; sugarcane is grown in the coastal plains, in Central America.

Central Americas location on top of moving tectonic plates causes many earthquakes and volcanoes creating mountains and islands in the region. Many islands in the Caribbean made from tips of ancient volcanoes.

Rich soil in mountains is a positive effect have volcanoes had on the region. A volcano caused much of the population of Montserrat to leave.

There are more earthquakes on the western side of Central America than on the eastern side because it is closer to the edge of the tectonic plate. An earthquake destroyed much of Haitis capital in 2010.

Central Americans make most of their money by growing crops (Agriculture) and hosting tourists. Tourism brings high amounts of income to the region so people do not have to destroy the rain

forest for farmland. People clear areas for farmland and use trees for wood cause deforestation of the rain forests. Growing coffee in shade is an example of a farming

practice that is good for the environment. Jos Urteaga convinced poachers and young people to

protect the sea turtles from becoming extinct in Nicaragua.

The Spanish controlled most of Central America in the 1700s, other European nations took over the region to gain riches from growing cash crops. The trade pattern among the Americas, Europe,

and Africa was called triangular trade, it caused trade and competition among European countries. Europe, Africa, and the Americas were connected by Triangular Trade.

In the triangular trade, raw materials came from the Americas. The original natives of the Caribbean died from European diseases, so Europeans brought Africans to the Americas as slaves to work on plantations

Columbian Exchange caused crops to be transferred by ship across the Atlantic Ocean between the Western and Eastern hemispheres; it also spread diseases to all continents
