About the Ural Mountains





 Ural Mountains

The Ural Moutains cut through north and south of the Russian territory in the western region.The Ural Mountains are also defined as the "Stone Belt". Another term used for the Ural Mountains is the "Natural Border" intersecting with Russia and Europe. The Ural Mountains were named after a tribe called the "Uralians". The Ural Mountains are about 250 million years old and their largest capital is called Yekaterinburg. Since the Ural mountains are so big, it was divided into three groups. They are the Southern, Middle, and Northern Urals.

Southern Urals


The Southern Urals are near Orsk a city and Ural lake. The Southern Urals are 1,200 meters high. The Southern Urals also have a lot of plains. The highest peak in the Ural Mountains is called Gora Yamantau. The countries that the Ural Mountains intersect are Russia and Kazakhstan. Some states in or on the Ural mountains are Bashkortostan, Orenburg, Chelyabinsk, Tatarstan, Samara, Ul’yanovsk and Kurgan. The area of the Ural Mountains is 188,508 sq mi. The length of the Ural Mountains is 443 miles North-South and 729 miles East-West. The center of the Ural Mountains is at 52° 44' North Latitude and  57° 9' East longitude.



 Middle Urals


The Middle Urals are near the city Serov, and is 1,000 meters high. The land is full of forests. This land is also one of the most populated areas of the Ural Mountains. One of the big reasons why the Middle Urals are so popular is because in Eastern Russia and Siberia people migrated through some of this land. The only river in the Ural Mountains is named the Chousovaya River. 


Northern Urals


The Northern Urals are reconized as the "subrange". The subrange is 130,647 square miles. There are plateaus in the Northern Urals along with some swampy lowlands. The subrange is near the Artic Sea. The Northern Urals do not have a trees sourrounding them. On the very top of the Ural mountainssome of them have names. They are called the: Sablya, Telpoz-Iz, and Isherim. These names are in  the Russian.

Wow! Im surprised with all the information you got into 5 subheadings. Its worthy information, but there also kind of like run on paragraphs.Just in Par. 1 you talk about Uralians, and the stonebelt. Get a little more info, and you could have 2 paragraphs. In par.2 you talk about the area, the place, and geographical features. You get me? Work on that, and you'll be pretty well off.

I noticed that your page had some information. I think you did a OK job with adding the links. You could have added more in the Northern, Middle, and Southern Urals section. I think you did an awsome job with adding captions, though.

AMAZING!!!I love your page, you had a great amount of content and also had good formatting and pictures. Although like everyone, you had a weakness, I only noticed ONE formatting error and that was the huge sapce at the top. Great work I think you guys deserve a 91! Nice job

You did a good job on content for the topic you had! You could have added more links to another wiki page. The pictures and the maps are exelent! The Middle and Northern Urals could have had more information.

Great wiki page. I was interested to read the whole thing after reading the first paragraph. I liked the facts you told about the mountains. I also think your page has a nice look to it, the pictures and the bubble shares. You maybe could have put a little more info on it like a interseting facts subtitle. I would rank your page out of 100 a 92%. Great Job!!!!

I agree with Lauren you could use more content. I think that your grammar was excellent. If I were doing this project something for more content would be to include more of the origin of the mountains. Some of your paragraphs were a bit on the short side. The norhtern Urals paragraph had no links! I think it was a decent page.

Nice page you guys! Your format is very neat and organized, but I think you guys could have added more links....you don't have very many (you have like 1 or 2 per subheading). You guys have a good amount of information, but I think you guys could have added a little more. Over all your page is very neat, organized, detailed, and you have pictures. Keep up the awsome work!

Malcolm H. This deserves a two because, the formatting is wrong and there were too many pictures. There was some good information but not enough detail.

I thought this page had outstanding formatting! Your subtitles, layout and font are all terrific and really made looking at your page enjoyable. I also liked that someone carefully proofread for spelling errors...because I don't think I see any mistakes. Your content was confusing in some places though....One example was in your section on the Middle Urals. You wrote: "The Middle Urals are filled with forests because it looks like a big plain." Plains have hardly any trees!
