20 Best Tips

Continents Fact Files Printable – Geography Printables

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy .


This year Kaleb and I have been wandering around the world via books, Little Passports, and various other things we come across in our travels. We have a slew of resources and to go along with a few of our books, I put together some printables where we could track important information related to the countries. 



There are several pages for each continent: a blank continent image, one showing countries/territories within the continent, and another labeling each of the countries/territories within the continent (Antarctica only has one page). 

All continent fact pages were designed using the traditional Montessori colors: Africa (green), Antarctica (white), Asia (yellow), Australia (brown), Europe (red), North America (orange),  and South America (pink). 

Each page has room to record the following information and also shows where that continent is in comparison to other continents: 

  • Size/Area
  • Number of Countries
  • Population
  • Highest Point
  • Place with Most People
  • Climate
  • Top Landmarks
  • Natural Resources
  • Nearby Oceans

We’ve been using the below books to help us fill in the information blanks on each continent fact file: 



The set also has seven half-sheet printables we recommend printing off onto cardstock and laminating. Use them as larger flash cards to show the various country/territory divisions on the continents. We have a copy in each of our continent boxes and will put them on the wall above our map when we are studying the continent. 



We also highly recommend taking part in a Little Passports subscription! Not sure which adventure to choose for your explorer? Check out these Little Passports blog posts and learn more about their four subscription options:

    Thankyou-these look fantastic and will be a great supplement to our current geography unit!

  2. Shannon Brock says

    This is such amazing information! Thank you so much for making it available! I teach a class about countries of the world for summer school, and this has broadened my list! I just wanted to share back. There is a great video site called Discovery Education Streaming. My school district has made it available to me, so I’m not sure how homeschool parents would get it, but it would be worth looking into. Anyhow, on Discover Education Streaming videos, there are these short two-and-a-half minute videos called FIVE. Each video tells you five things about a place, or an animal, or a type of transportation or a wonder. There are all kinds of them, including ones about the countries which you feature here. They’re quick and interesting, and usually add to fun facts about a place.

    Hello, thank you very much for those continent cards. I will for sure use it with my kids.

    I live in Switzerland so I was exited to see the european card…and instead of switzerland you wrote Liechtenstein ;o) Liechtenstein is also a small country between switzerland and Austria.

    Have a nice week-end and thanks again.
    Greetings from Switzerland :o)

  12. Destiny Taylor says

    Did you create the map graphics yourself? I would love to have a set of these for Country Fact sheets- instead of the continent name in the bar of color, a country name (or blank to fill in a individually)- and the word box be facts about the country- and the map of the continent smaller to shade in where the country is, and then a both underneath to draw the flag….. WOuld you be willing to share the map graphics?

  13. These were a great help. Thank you very much!
