    story about the continents and oceans
    By Gaye Murphy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I had my 3rd graders memorize this story and just today a 5th grader told me that the story helped them remember the continents. Here's the story: North America and South America got married and went to Europe for their honeymoon. They had four children and each child's name starts with the letter A. The largest child has the smallest name. For some reason this story sticks in their mind. I also had them create their own Island named Shoe Island. They traced their own shoe and had to create a map with a legend and key. They loved it.
