Author Intro

   
    There is an entire world of people living across the Atlantic Ocean. While our home, America, is very young historically, the countries of Europe are a lot older. These countries existed hundreds of years before America was even an idea! These countries, being so old, are extremely important when understanding our place in the world. It is significant, then, to learn about these European countries in order to know more about our own home. Embark with us on an adventure to study the countries of Europe both geographically and historically. By the end of our journey, we will  have crossed the English channel, numerous mountains and rivers, and eventually end up in Russia! 

    Before we go on this journey to learn about new and interesting places, allow us, your teachers, to introduce you to the journey you are about to embark on.
