Do you know the difference between a country and a continent?  It's hard to keep track sometimes.  Just remember that a continent is big - it's a collection of a bunch of smaller countries (usually!).  For example, the country we live in is the United States.  The United States is a country in the continent of North America.  Some other countries that are in North America are Canada and Mexico.
