Week 7 - Belarus
This week we are studying Belarus, a landlocked country in Eastern Europe. It borders Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Latvia, and Lithuania.
Belarus is relatively flat and contains large tracts of marshy land. About 34% of Belarus is covered by forests.
Many streams and 11,000 lakes are found in Belarus. Three major rivers run through the country: the Neman, the Pripyat, and the Dnepr.
The capital of Belarus is Minsk.
