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! We have lots of free printables about South America to share with you. south-america

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.
