Are you working on learning the 7 Continents in your homeschool? I thought it would be fun to put together an entire series that covers each continent with links to free printables, unit studies, resources and ideas for that specific continent.
This week’s continent is South America!
South America is the fourth largest continent in the world. It includes the following countries: Venezuela, Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Suriname, Brazil, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Colombia, Guyana, and Ecuador. In addition, South America has two non-sovereign territories: French Guiana, a territory of France, and the Falkland Islands, a territory of the United Kingdom. It also contains many spectacular geographic sights such as the rainforest, the highest waterfall in the world, the highest volume river, and the longest mountain range!
Printables and Unit Studies:
Mr. Donn has a South America Geography page that is full of games, power point presentations, teacher lesson plans, printables and many more resources!
South America Geography from Ducksters – this site is chock full of facts and information on South America. There is a continent map as well as country maps, population facts, country flags and more. There are also games and crossword puzzles!
When studying about South America you will find it is home to amazing rainforests! Here are some posts we have done full of free rainforest themed printables and resources you may enjoy:
