OCEANS AND SEAS

Our global ocean is one vast connected body of water

Continents separate areas of the ocean, so we divide the ocean into parts.  The 3 major oceans are (in order of size):  the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Indian Ocean.   We further break down these major parts as follows: 
 
  OCEANS
Antarctic* South Atlantic
Arctic North Pacific
Indian South Pacific
North Atlantic  


Each ocean consists of smaller bodies of water we call seas, gulfs and bays. 
Each of these is a body of water within one of the major oceans.

There is discrepancy among geographers regarding the Antarctic Ocean.  Some recognize it, but most consider those waters within the boundaries of the South Pacific, which has its northern boundaries at the equator and southern boundaries at the coast of Antarctica.
