Lake Superior

We just learned about the lake the Caspian Sea

The next largest lake is Lake Superior, which is a fresh water lake.
It is the largest lake that is not connected to the ocean like the Caspian Sea.
Superior is connected to the US states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, and the Canadian province of Ontario.

Superior was called Gitche Gumee by the Native Americans, which means a great sea.
There was an old ship called the Edmund Fitzgerald that sank in Lake Superior, and it is still there today on the bottom of the lake.
