Where is the Dominican Republic?

Hi Kids,

The Dominican Republic and Haiti share an island called Hispanola in the Caribbean Sea.  

Can you find Florida on a map?  It is at the bottom of the United States. If you go down (south) from Florida, you will see Cuba. If you go right (east) from Cuba you will see an island with Haiti on the left (west) and the Dominican Republic on the right (east). That's where we are!

Do you know that north is up at the top of a map?  I learned my directions by remembering "Never Eat Sour Watermelon" but my cousin told me to "Never Eat Soggy Worms!"

Have a great day!
