Talking about the oceans

Activity:

Talking about the oceans and their significance for people

[LO 1.2]

Water covers about 70% of the surface of the earth. The three largest oceans on the earth are the Pacific, the Atlantic and the Indian oceans.

Answer the following questions:

5. What sports are practiced on the sea?

Where do animals live in such cold areas?

Animals live on the land or in the water.

Seals swim under the icecaps. They have a thick layer of fat, called blubber, under their skin, which keeps them warm.

Their food:

Millions of tiny creatures that look like shrimps and are called animal plankton live in the icy seas. Fish, seals, whales and seabirds eat these.
