Land of Ice
By Jody Williams
1 I am a country. I am part of Europe. I am its westernmost country. I am an island. I am in the North Atlantic Ocean. I am just below the Arctic Circle. I am Iceland.
2 Iceland was settled in the year 874. Arnarson first lived on the island. He was from Norway. Norway is another country in Europe. Arnarson was a Viking. He made his home where Reykjavik is now. Today it is the capital city. Years later, other Vikings came to the island. Each person had freedom. They each owned land.
3 Iceland is about the same size as Ohio. Iceland has many glaciers. A glacier is a large mound of ice. It moves slowly. It changes the land. Iceland has mountains. There are valleys. There are many waterfalls.
