Islands are bodies of land surrounded by water, a chain of islands is called an archipelago. Australia is a continent that is also an island. Madagascar is an island nation; Japan, and the Philippines are nations situated on archipelagos.

The word archipeligo comes from the Greek arkhon “leader” and pelagos “sea” or “ocean”.

Island, Peninsula, and Cape Poster Text

Cape: A point or head of land, projecting beyond the adjacent coast into a body of water.
Island: Any piece of land, smaller than a continent and larger than a rock, which is completely surround by water. Very small islands are called islets. Groups of related islands are called archipelagos.
