Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Usually, she's traveling the entire world, but today, she's traveling to the southern hemisphere with us! Just how well do you know the geography of the southern hemisphere?
When it comes to world geography and the hemispheres, the world is often regarded through the prime meridian. This line splits the world in half, separating it into western and eastern hemispheres. Today, we're splitting the world another way! The equator runs horizontally across the middle of the globe, separating it into the northern and southern hemisphere.
While you'll find all six habitable continents within the northern hemisphere, you'll only find four of them in the southern hemisphere. Both North America and Europe have no land beyond the equator. With South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia/Oceania falling beneath the equator, just how much do you know about the southern hemisphere?
Can you name the huge island off the coast of Africa? Do you know the capital of Argentina? Can you name the three oceans that fall within the southern hemisphere? What about the name of the inhabitable continent found at the bottom of the world? If you can answer these questions, you're ready for this quiz!
Today we're hopping between the continents and oceans for this quiz. Can you make it south of the equator or will you be exiled to the north? There's only one way to find out!
