Continents of the World

The Definition of a Continent
A continent is a large body of land, above water, that has a natural geological border.

How Many Continents Are There?
Depending on how you count them, there are anywhere from 4 to 7 continents. The difference of opinion arises because some people consider Europe and Asia to be one continent, some people consider North and South America to be one continent, and a few people even consider Europe, Asia, and Africa to be one huge continent called Eurafrasia.

What are the Names of the Continents?
As mentioned above, not everyone agrees on exactly how the world is divided into continents, but these are the entities you will sometimes see referred to as continents:

Africa
Asia
Eurasia
Eurafrasia

Antarctica
Europe
Oceania
Australia

America
North America
South America
