Curriculum

We are learning about continents and oceans in curriculum.

About seventy percent of the surface of the earth

And it's divided up in five parts, from biggest to smallest

Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern, Arctic
Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern, Arctic

I'm the Pacific, to be specific
I'm a third or the earth's surface, where my turf is
And my Mariana Trench is the very very deepest in the sea

I'm the Atlantic, named after the Greek god, Atlas
With the Bermuda Triangle and the Gulf Stream in me

I'm the Indian Ocean, I'm the warmest around
And I'm the Southern Ocean, where Antarctica is found

And I'm the Arctic, the smallest and the shallowest
But that's fine, you see
I've got more ice than you've ever seen
Even polar bears walk on me

We're the
Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern, Arctic

And I'm Europe. You're welcome... for the pasta, pizza, waffles, and fries
