I can explain that an ocean is a body of water. I can explain that much of Earth is covered with water. I can identify the five main oceans on Earth.
Job 38: 8-11 8 “Who kept the sea inside its boundaries as it burst from the womb, 9 and as I clothed it with clouds and wrapped it in thick darkness? 10 For I locked it behind barred gates, limiting its shores. 11 I said, ‘This far and no farther will you come. Here your proud waves must stop!’
How much of earth's surface do you think is covered by bodies of water?
Much of Earth is covered in water. Oceans are very large, deep bodies of saltwater. Seas are smaller than oceans. A sea can be part of an ocean, like the Caribbean sea. A sea can be surrounded by land, like the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee.
Why do you think Earth is sometimes called the "blue Planet"
All the oceans and seas are connected and make one huge body of water. This is called the world ocean. Scientist divide this one body of water into five oceans.
