In summary, a continent is a large landmass surrounded by water. There are seven continents: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. Most people live on the continent of Asia, which is also the largest. Continents are constantly moving due to plate tectonics. The smallest continent is Australia, which is also the only one in the Southern Hemisphere.
