Learning the Continents

This year, with our theme of "Around the World in 180 Days," the students will be learning the names of all seven continents. Our "come to the carpet" song, which you heard at Orientation, even teaches the names of the continents to the children. This morning the class named all the continents and found them on a flat map and on the globe and even identified the continent where they live (North America). Can you name the seven continents without looking?

1) North America, 2) South America, 3) Europe, 4) Asia, 5) Africa, 6) Australia and 7) Antarctica.

See if you and your child can learn the seven continents by singing the ditty below to the tune of "Old My Darling Clementine."

North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa

Australia, Antarctica - Those are the continents!
