Peninsula Poem

It isn't an island surrounded by sea,
Attached to the land is how it should be!
Surrounded by water, but only 3 sides,
Just like the state where Miami resides...

Small or quite large,
Like curled up Cape Cod,
Might be a place for fish hooks and a rod...

Peninsulas sit,
In the sea and its sand,
Stick out into water,
But attached to the land!

 

What is a Peninsula?
Peninsulas are strips of land that project into a body of water. Unlike islands, they are connected to a larger piece of land. 
The largest peninsula on Earth is the Arabian Peninsula, and countries, such as Italy, Malaysia and Singapore are located on peninsulas.
Florida is a peninsula that is connected to the mainland United States, and Cape Cod is a cape (which is a type of peninsula) that is connected to the coast of Massachusetts.
