    The largest island in the world is Greenland. Australia is considered a continent because it has unique plant and animal life. Antarctica also is a continent - larger than Europe and Australia. Greenland, although quite big, shares the habitat features of Northern America.

    Bishop Rock

    The smallest island in the world - according to the Guiness Book of Records - is Bishop Rock. It lies at the most south-westerly part of the United Kingdom. It is one of 1040 islands around Britain and only has a lighthouse on it. In 1861, the British government set out the parameters for classifying an island. It was decided that if it was inhabited, the size was immaterial. However, if it was uninhabited, it had to be "the summer's pasturage of at least one sheep" - which is about two acres.

    Maybe the smallest is Malta? It's a country too.

    Malta is an island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea in Europe, south to Italy. I have recently stumbled upon this video clip about Malta http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYqYJlZeSMg
