Help us with our Monster Project

We are looking for Argentina, Myanmar, Russia and England, Taiwan on our maps.  Can you help us by telling us what other countries are close to these ones?

We are participating in a monster project and we need to know a few things:

What is the latitude and longitude for Winnipeg?

What is the average high and low temperature for summer and winter?

We also have to describe monster teeth.  Can you please help us by giving us spooky, scary or gross words that could be used to describe teeth.
