Geography Detectives!

We have been using maps and atlases to name and locate the continents and oceans of the world.  To find out more about each continent, we have been comparing and contrasting the geographical features of each continent; the longest river, the highest mountain, the largest lake, the climate, the population and the name of the largest and smallest country.  Using their skills of investigation, children were challenged to work together to uncover a series of geographical facts hidden around the classroom.  They used the information gathered to ask and answer questions about each continent.
