Seven continents connect the People of the World
Seven continents connect the People of the World

The largest continent is where
The world's tallest mountain reaches into the air.
One out of every four people in the world live there.
It's the home of the panda bear.
Can you name the continent?
The highest point is Mt. Everest... that's in ASIA!

The 2nd largest continent has tigers and elephants.
The world's longest river flows past the pyramids.
Sahara desert gets so hot
Some years it doesn't rain one drop.
Can you name the continent?
The Egyptian pyramids, are in AFRICA!

On the 3rd largest continent you'll get
To see landforms you won't forget.
Like the Rocky Mountains or 5 great lakes;
The Grand Canyon with its eagles and rattlesnakes.
Can you name the continent?
It includes Mexico and Canada. It's NORTH AMERICA!

The rainiest place in the world is here;
Gets more than 22 feet of rain in a year.
The Andes Mountains run all the way from North to South.
Piranhas in the Amazon would like to put you in their mouth!
Can you name the continent?
It's SOUTH AMERICA, I'll bet.

It's so cold everywhere you go.
Penguins wish they had a coat.
Ice and snow! Ice and snow!
That's ANTARCTICA. Only scientists go there.

Many small countries form this 2nd smallest continent.
The Rhine and Thames and Danube rivers run through it.
Spain, Greece, France and Italy
Surround the Mediterranean Sea.
Can you name the continent?
The "Euro" is their common currency. It's EUROPE!

Koala bears in eucalyptus trees live on the
Smallest continent, surrounded by seas.
Hopping around are kangaroos and wallabies.
It's native people are called Aborigines
Can you name the continent?
Some people call it Oceania. It's AUSTRALIA!

Seven continents connect the People of the World
Seven continents connect the People of the World
Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa
North and South America, Antarctica
Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa
North and South America, Antarctica
Seven continents connect the People of the World
