Carib Indians inhabited the island, located in the Caribbean, in the 1600’s. St. George’s is the capital.  The 108,000 inhabitants depend a great deal on tourism. The island is about twice the size of Washington, DC. Nutmeg and mace are leading exports. Idea: Children could learn how nutmeg and mace are grown. Are nutmeg and mace different?
