By December 30, 2011

Follow me on:

Yesterday's post talked a bit about the oceans in general. Can you name the 5 oceans? Which is the biggest? The smallest?  Here is a bit about the largest 3 oceans on the Earth:

  • The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean, and covers 60,060,894 square miles, making it about 15 times the size of the United States.
  • The Atlantic Ocean is smaller and shallower than the Pacific Ocean, and covers 29,637,974 square miles, which means it is about 6 times the size of the United States.
  • The Indian Ocean is the third-largest ocean, and covers 26,469,620 square miles, which makes it about 5.5 times the size of the United States.
