Great Britain
By Sharon Fabian

1     Before the Revolutionary War, the United States was one of the colonies of Great Britain (often just called England). Even though we fought against the English in that war, the United States has had close ties with Great Britain for much of the time since then. In both World War I and World War II, the United States and Great Britain were allies.
2     Most people in the United States know something about England, the main country in Great Britain. Many people know the story of Romeo and Juliet from books or films and know of its famous playwright, William Shakespeare. Many others have heard music by the Beatles, a band from England that became famous all around the world in the 1960s.
3     The full name of Great Britain is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The UK is not too hard to find on a map. Since it is an island country, it is separate from the continent of Europe. Sometimes, however, map questions about the UK can be confusing. This is because the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is made up of many island and many other countries.
