My daughter informed me that, according to her teacher, there are 5 continents:
- The Americas (because North and South America are connected)
- Asia (no comment on how connected Europe and Asia are)
Antarctica is apparently just a really big block of ice …
The world really has changed since I was at school …
Update: One of my colleagues pointed out that there are a few ways to count the continents (SPOILER: Each method includes Antarctica).
