World Geography Scavenger Hunt: South America ~ FREE Printable

We have found one of the most fun things to do with geography is to “find” things. My kids love it when you give them a country, landmark or physical attribute such as river, mountain, body of water, and they race to see who can find it. Since we find this to be so much fun, but we often struggle with things to come up with for them to find, I decided to create a series of World Geography Scavenger Hunt printables.

World Geography Scavenger Hunt Printables: South America from Starts At Eight

This is the first in my series of World Geography Scavenger Hunt printables. We are starting our fun off with South America.

South America Facts

  • The main languages spoken in South America is Portuguese closely followed by Spanish

  • South America is connected to North America by a narrow strip of land called Isthmus of Panama
  • The highest point in South America is Cerro Aconcagua in the Andes Mountains in the country of Argentina.
  • The largest South American country in both size and population is Brazil. The largest city is Sao Paulo, Brazil, which is also one of the ten largest cities in the world.
  • North and South America were named after Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci.
  • The highest waterfall in the world is Santo del Angel (also called Angel Falls). It is almost 1000 meters high!
  • The Atacama Desert in Chile is considered to be one of the driest places on Earth.
