There are five oceans on the Earth, named the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Northern or Arctic, and Southern or Antarctic. The largest is the Pacific Ocean. Find each of the oceans on the map.

The water shown at the upper part of the picture is the Northern or Arctic Ocean, and that at the lower part, the Southern or Antarctic.

Ships sail on all these oceans, as you see them here on the Pacific, just as flies travel around an orange. A fly travels on the outside or surface of an orange, and people and ships move on the surface of the Earth. The fields, hills, roads, rivers, and ponds, are parts of the Earth's surface.

Notebook Work: Color and label the oceans on the map of the Earth.
