All About North America


In our All About North America lesson plan, students learn all about North America, including its history, its people, its countries, and its culture. Students also learn to locate it on a map.


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.

Great Product

It was absolutely perfect for my students with no internet during this COVID-19 closure. I also plan to use it next year in my classroom. Great way to integrate reading and various forms of learning to Social Studies

The lesson on North America

The lesson on North America was interesting, and I especially appreciated the exercises. On the other hand I expected a bit more, mostly due to the title... "All about" wasn't exactly true, the lesson lacked various elements I integrated myself. Still it was a good starting point. Thank you Clarendon!

North America

My students really enjoyed the packet. We used it a base for their individual NA country reports. I like that students needed to use map skills in order to answer some of the questions. Just FYI: on the Name that Country or Territory handout add an "I" to question 23 and a "D" to question 31.

Don't reinvent the wheel.

If you have a specific learning objective that you do not have material for, you will probably find something that you can use with confidence on this site! Happy Hunting!

great lesson

we haven't done this lesson yet, but I've glanced over it and I'm sure my student/daughter will love it as she loves all the others.
