Description

This seven-book series is a user's guide to locating Earth's continents and the countries of the world. Kids will learn that more than 200 million years ago, all continents began as part of Pangaea, a supercontinent that broke up to form seven continents. They will acquire map-reading skills by learning the directions in which longitude and latitude lines point, where the equator is, and what the prime meridian is. The final chapter in each book features a scientist, related to the continent, with specialties that range from dinosaurs to the study of volcanoes. The South Pole is located on Antarctica, a land of ice. Readers will learn that even Antarctica was once a warm place where plants and animals, such as dinosaurs and flying reptiles, flourished. Antarctica is in darkness half of the year and has constant daylight the other half. Many countries around the world have claimed the land in Antarctica to use for peaceful, scientific research.
