Our All about North America lesson plan introduces students to the familiar continent of North America. Students are familiar with the seven continents but may not know everything about their neighbors in North America, the other countries, people, attractions, and information about the continent. During this lesson, students are asked to match the description with the correct place. Students are also asked to unscramble the names of each North American country in order to demonstrate their familiarity with the North American countries.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to locate the continent of North America on a map, list some of the countries and characteristics of North America, and explain some of its history.
