to answer my nephew alex's question- why is there a north and south america but no east and west america?

Take a look at the map and you will see the border between North America and South America is horizontal- creating North and South America. If the border between the two were vertical- we would have an East and West America.Thanks for the question Alex... and after your parents read this answer to you, don't forget to ask, "Why?".
