- Northern Ireland
- Great Britain
- United Kingdom
Taken a guess? Good. Now read the rest of this post for the answers.
The country of England is shown on the map to the right.
This is the country of Wales.
Let's go the other other island. This is Ireland.
Here is Northern Ireland.
Most of us could have used process elimination to get the above correct, I think. But now the going gets rough...
Britain is a term that can mean several things. It can be used to reference just England and Wales (as shown to the right), or all of Great Britain, or the UK.
England, Scotland, and Wales together can be referred to as Great Britain.
And finally, everything on all the related islands (shown in green) is referred to as the British Isles.
Now for extra, extra credit, pat yourself on the back if you knew that this little island between the two big islands is called the Isle of Man. I had heard the term before, but had no idea where it was on the globe.
