Noun

The Earth looks blue from the space because most of it is covered with water. This big quantity of water is called the ocean.

In fact, the big ocean is made up of 5 smaller oceans: Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Arctic Ocean and Southern Ocean.

Are there really two Pacific Oceans on Earth? Pacific Ocean is in two places on the map, because the map is trying to show the Earth, which is a circle, in a rectangle. Since the Pacific Ocean is the biggest – it doesn’t fit in the rectangle, so we see one part of it on the right and another part – on the left.

Exercise
Print out the picture of the blank world map. Then circle the oceans and write their names on the map.
