Caribbean Islands

We just learned about the country of Greenland.

We've covered the larger countries in North America,
but there's one thing we haven't mentioned yet... the islands!

The area that is South of the state of Florida is called the Caribbean Sea.
There are more than 30 island countries there, spread out over 7,000 islands!

The most populated islands in the Caribbean are Cuba, Dominican Republic and Haiti, each of them with over 10 million people.

There are over 40 million people spread across those small islands,
more people than live in the whole country of Canada!
