The Earth's Continents
The map in the picture shows the surface of the Earth without any water. The land masses shown are called continents.
Earth has seven continents (one is buried under snow and ice). They are named Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Australia, Europe and Asia. Can you find them? (Be careful! One of the continents is missing!).
