The New Ocean
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Did you know there's a new ocean? The Southern Ocean is the fifth ocean of the world. It was not always thought of as a separate ocean. In the spring of 2000, officials decided to name the Southern Ocean as a distinct ocean. The Southern Ocean surrounds the continent of Antarctica. For this reason, it is also called the Antarctic Ocean.
 
2     Oceans of the world cover about 71% of the Earth's surface. The five oceans of the world are the Atlantic Ocean, the Arctic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and the Southern Ocean.
 
3     The Pacific Ocean is the largest. The Atlantic Ocean is second. The Indian Ocean is third in size. The Southern Ocean is the fourth. The Arctic Ocean is the smallest.
