Welcome to BritainUSA.com 4Kids!
I bet you're here because you have to do an assignment for school. Did your teacher ask you to write a report on a foreign country and did you choose Britain?
Well, this site is here to help you learn all about Britain.
First, you should know that the official name of Britain is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is sometimes called just Britain or the United Kingdom.
Britain consists of four countries. They are England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
If you are looking for photos of one or more of these countries, we have an entire picture gallery on the 4kids site. You should check it out. There are pictures of London too, and pictures of the Royal Family and castles.
Does your teacher want you to write about the history of Britain? Well, we can help with our History & Geography section. There you'll learn that Britain has not been invaded since the Normans came from France in 1066, but it was invaded many times before that. And that the invaders included groups like the Celts, Romans, Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. Of course you know that America gained its independence from Britain during the Revolutionary War. But do you know about Britain during the reign of Queen Victoria and during World War II?
You can also find out about different words the British use in our glossary of British terms. And we have information about Pen Pals. If you're a scout, you might want to visit our section on the Citizenship in the World Merit Badge.
We also have sections on British sports and the life of kids in Britain. What do you think? Do British kids watch the same TV shows as you? What about books and music and clothes? How are kids in Britain different from American kids?
I bet you know that soccer is the most popular sport in Britain. It is also the most popular sport in the world. But did you know that cricket and rugby and Formula One racing are also very popular in Britain?
All of these questions can be answered by using the 4kids site. Have fun and we hope you learn a lot!
