There are 5 oceans on our earth:
- The Pacific Ocean
- The Atlantic Ocean
- The Arctic Ocean surrounds the North Pole. It is the smallest "ocean" with only 5.5 million square miles and 4% of the world's water. It is frozen all the time, except at its edges.
- The Indian Ocean is the third largest area. It covers about 28 million square miles and holds 20% of the world's water. About 90% of the Indian Ocean is south of the equator.
- The Southern Ocean is where you'll find Antarctica and the South Pole. Some say it is not an "ocean" at all, but the southern part of three "oceans": the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian.
