Panama - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Imagine a very long walk to school every day. To get to school, you have to walk three kilometers around a lot of woods. Imagine that there's a place across the woods that's only 10 meters across. Would you make a trail through the woods so you wouldn't have to walk three kilometers? You probably would! There's a place like this short path through the woods. It's actually a country in Central America called Panama.
 
2     Panama is at the southern end of Central America. It is at the thinnest part of Central America. It lies between Costa Rica in Central America and Colombia in South America. Its capital city is Panama City. Panama is home to the Panama Canal.
 
3     What is a canal? It is a place like the path through the woods, except a canal connects bodies of water. The Panama Canal connects the Caribbean Sea with the Pacific Ocean. How it was built and how it works is quite amazing.
