Around the world in 80 days! Rather than traveling around the world physically, we're going to take you virtually, and we don't need 80 days to do it! From all the countries around the globe, can you pick the continent in which each of these countries is located?

There are seven continents of the world but only six of them are habitable. While Antarctica is large enough to hold many countries, it is not made for permanent life. While some people travel to "sight-see" or to conduct research, all of it is temporary. Besides Antarctica, there are the six other habitable continents: Africa, Australia, Asia, North America, South America, and Europe.

Throughout the world, there are 195 countries that lie within these six continents. Africa has the most countries with 54. Europe comes in second with 47, while Asia is a close third with 44. North America has 23, South America has 12, and Australia, often called Oceania, has 14. With all these countries around the world, can you match them to the proper continent?

If you live in the United States, you might easily recognize which continent it's in, but what about Fiji? You might know that Russia takes up the majority of one continent, but could you match Guatemala to the proper one?

We're traveling around the world with this quiz! Will you be piloting these answers towards a perfect landing, or will you be stuck at check-in? 

Ready for take off!
