Learning About our World with These Worksheets for Kids!
Learning the oceans and continents can be tough and I know this as I did struggle with some of them as a kid (as stated by my mother).
I had issues with Africa and South America as they looked alike to me and I often misplaced the Indian ocean (shame, shame on me). I did master them eventually.
When I was a kid we learned about 4 oceans but now we have 5 – not all schools teach 5 so I made printables with both versions – use whichever suits you.
There are 7 continents on all of these printables although I know some places teach different numbers (as I’ve heard from 4 to 7).
How many should you teach?
Well this depends on the school system.
I would advise you stick with the official version for your region but that you also teach your kids that different countries teach this thing differently.
Continents and Oceans Worksheets (Free Printable)
If kids aren’t yet familiar with the names I personally would start with a word search puzzle along with atlas where kids can see all the continent and ocean names – it’s stress free and fun. Then I would continue with other worksheets.
To add more fun you can combine this printable with my free printable ocean activity books.
