Since 1895, France governed Madagascar. In 1960, the country became a fully independent country called the Malagasy Republic. It became the Democratic Republic of Madagascar in 1975 and the Republic of Madagascar in 1993.
The Sakalava people
The Sakalava are an ethnic group of Madagascar with its population over 600,000.Their name means "people of the long valleys."
The Sakalava people are a very proud people that have been around for thousands of years. Because they have been around for so long, there are many important pieces of their culture.
One part of this is their traditional face painting. Many women in Madagascar put a yellow paste on their face. It is made from a special type of wood and is used to keep the skin healthy and protected from the sun and mosquitoes. The Sakalava tribe uses the same paste to paint decorations on their faces.
The official language of Iceland is Icelandic which has changed little over the centuries.
Iceland became part of Norway in 1262. 400 years later it was a part of Denmark before becoming independent in 1918 and a full republic in 1944.
In 1980, Iceland became the first country to elect a women president.
Iceland is home to around 200 volcanoes and it has a third of all lava flows found on Earth. 10% of the total land is covered by either cooled lava beds or glaciers.
Iceland has some unique natural features such as ice cap mountains, volcanoes, hot springs, waterfalls, glaciers, geysers and ancient cooled lava flows.
The official language of Jordan is Arabic.
5,795,000 people live in Jordan.
