Here's a great song to teach your kids the four oceans.

Sing to the tune of "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean."

Atlantic is one of our oceans.
Pacific and Indian too.
The Arctic is often forgotten.
I'll try to remember, won't you.

And try this to help your students remember the 7 continents:

To learn the seven continents, think of the letter A.

And when it comes to only one an E will save the day.

There's Africa, Asia, Antarctica, Americas, North and South you see,

Now just remember Europe, that's the one that starts with E!
