Arctic ocean

We've learned about four other oceans so far,
in order of largest to smallest they are:
Pacific, Atlantic, Indian and Southern oceans.

The last one is the Arctic ocean

It's the ocean at the very top of the earth, where the North Pole is.

Indian ocean

The two big oceans we learned about already were the Atlantic ocean and Pacific ocean.

Another ocean that's located in between Africa, India and Australia
is called the Indian Ocean.

Atlantic Ocean

We've already learned about the big pieces of land called continents,
such as Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America.

But what about all that water in between?
Those are all the oceans of the world!

The ocean that's between North America and Europe,
and in between South America and Africa
is called the Atlantic Ocean.

It's the second biggest ocean in the world.
