Second Largest Continent

Africa is the second largest continent.

Africa has many different countries.  Some are very large and some are tiny.

Egypt is in Africa and home for the famous pyramids and the world's longest river: the Nile.




Geology of Africa

Africa is on the African plate.  The African plate is not a dinner plate!  Geologically speaking, a plate is a portion of the earth's crust that floats on the molten mantle.

Africa has many mountain ranges, canyons and rivers.  The terrain can vary considerably from one part of the continent to another.  There are many different geological features.  Places where people live can be very different indeed.

Climate and Seasons

Depending upon where you live in Africa, you may experience very distinct seasons.  Some places have similar weather year round.
