  • Listenlisten to the ocean...we love to hear the waves crash against the shore, we

  • love to hear the waves smash the rockswe love to watch and listen to the Ocean.

  • The Oceans of the world are vastthey are humongous!

  • Look at our earth, most of our earth is covered with waterin fact, over 72% of the earth

  • is covered with water called Oceans and Seas.

  • The Oceans are very salty, we call it saline; say it with mesay-leen” …saline means

  • salty and the Oceans of the earth are saline water and not fresh water and you cannot drink

  • Ocean waterbut you CAN swim in the Ocean and you can open your eyes in it and it won't

  • burn your eyes!

  • And you CAN SCUBA dive in the Ocean and explore the Ocean.

  • Let's explore the Oceans of the world together.

  • There are five major Oceans of the world, and although these Oceans are all connected,

  • they each have a different name.

  • They are; The Pacific Oceanthe Atlantic Oceanthe Indian OceanThe Southern Ocean

  • (also called the Antarctic Ocean) …and the Arctic Ocean.

  • Let's learn a little about them in order of their size.

  • The largest Ocean is called the Pacific Ocean.

  • The Pacific Ocean is massive!

  • Beginning from the coasts of Asia and Australia, and reaching way over to North and South America;

  • and then up to the north where it meets the Arctic Ocean and wayyy down to the Southern

  • Ocean; the Pacific Ocean takes in a big big chunk of the earth.

  • You'll find the islands of Polynesia in the Pacific including Hawaii and Samoa and

  • Tonga and a thousand other islands scattered throughout the South Pacific.

  • At the bottom of the Pacific Ocean you'll find the deepest place on earth!

  • The Mariana Trench.

  • The Mariana Trench is a deep scar over fifteen hundred miles long cut into the crust of the

  • earth and at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, the deepest known point on earth named The

  • Challenger Deep!

  • It is over 36,000 feet deep!

  • If you dropped the highest mountain on earth; Mount Everest, into The Challenger Deep, it

  • would still be covered with over a mile of sea water!

  • That's deep baby!

  • The next largest Ocean is the Atlantic Ocean.

  • Although the Atlantic is number 2…it is gigantic!

  • Like the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic also reaches north to the Arctic Ocean and down

  • to the Southern Ocean; and borders North and South America.

  • And then it reaches far across over toEurope and Africa!

  • The island of Puerto Rico is in the Atlantic Ocean.

  • The Atlantic Ocean kind of looks like an “S” as it follows the coasts of its borders and

  • it separates theOld Worldof Europe and Asia and Africa from theNew World

  • of the Americas.

  • Over the thousands of years, many thousands of ships have crossed the Atlantic, and thousands

  • of ships have sunk in Atlantic.

  • The Titanic hit an iceberg in the Atlantic and sank!

  • Many ships still with valuable treasure are scattered all over the Atlantic Ocean waiting

  • to be found!

  • Ocean number three!

  • The Indian Oceanthe boundaries of the Indian Ocean are Africa, Southern Asia, Australia

  • and the Southern Ocean.

  • The Indian Ocean is the largest breeding ground for the Humpback Whale!

  • But it is also the source for a large percentage of oil pumping; oil spills are believed to

  • be a great threat to the health of the Indian Ocean and the life in the Ocean.

  • Let's consider then Southern Oceanalso known as the Antarctic Ocean which waters

  • encompasses the southern Continent of Antarctica and touches three Oceans of the world: The

  • Pacific, the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans.

  • The worlds largest penguin species; the Emperor Penguin, live on the ice of the Southern Oceandid

  • I say ice?

  • YES!

  • ICE!

  • The Southern Ocean is cold!

  • It's the coldest Ocean because of the sheet of ice that covers Antarcticaand its cold

  • all the time!

  • This brings us to our last-named OceanIt surrounds and covers the North Pole where

  • there is no land but only ice and Ocean water and this Ocean is named the Arctic Ocean.

  • The Arctic Ocean may be the smallest of our Oceans, but it is not smallit is very,

  • very large and during the warmer months some of the ice melts and becomes ocean water,

  • and during colder months the water freezes and becomes ice.

  • These are the five Oceans of the world.

  • As you look out over these waters of the Ocean you may think…I can't see anything out

  • over the water and I can't see under the surfacehmm there must be nothing thereand

  • you may think nothing is going on down there!

  • But the truth is…a lot IS going on in the Ocean.

  • There are volcanoes IN the Ocean!

  • Volcanoes spewing lava!

  • And LIFE...living things are in the Ocean!

  • Hundreds of thousands of species of animals and plants are in the Oceans of the world!

  • From the coldest waters of the Ocean to the warmestplants and animals rely on healthy

  • and clean seawater to survive and thrive.

  • Many varieties of animals make the Oceans their home.

  • From the tiny krill to the largest animal on earth; the Blue Whalethey make their

  • home in the Oceans.

  • I don't think a Blue Whale would walk very easily on land...do you?

  • Strange and freaky looking animals like Octopus and Squid and the Nautilus and the Cuttlefishthese

  • amazing and intelligent creatures live in these waters as well.

  • Fish of every shape and size and color; and Sharks!

  • They are down there!

  • What do you think you'll find on the Ocean floor?

  • If you say; Gardens of spectacular coral reefs which grow very slowly and plants and sponges

  • that grow and provide protection for smaller critterswell, you would be right!

  • And deepway deep down in the Ocean where light cannot penetrate you will find strange

  • creatures which provide their own bioluminescent light!

  • AMAZING!

  • Don't forget that mammals like Dolphins and Whales, Walrus, Seals and Sealionsthey

  • all depend on the Ocean.

  • A vast variety of birds including Penguins and Albatross and the fascinating Pelican;

  • they also live on and around the Oceans of the world.

  • All these wonderful creatures big and small and many others require clean and healthy

  • waters of the Ocean to livebut the Oceans are in trouble!

  • These Oceans we've learned about are becoming more and more polluted with garbage!

  • Plastics and paper and garbage we carelessly throw away are making its way to the Ocean

  • and becoming huge floating islands of trash!

  • Wreaking havoc and causing problems for our animal friends down there!

  • Can anybody help protect the Oceans from being the dumping ground of the world?

  • Can you?

  • We must all do our part to protect these precious waters of the world.

  • Raise your hands if you're going to be friend of the Ocean and the billions of our living

  • friends in the Ocean.

  • I'm raising my hand right now.

  • Are you?
