Paragraph 1

Many of thought the world had four - the Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Arctic Oceans. That's what we were taught in school. However, a on the Internet will show that there is also a "Southern Ocean" around the South Pole and Antarctica. The National Geographic Society has now accepted that this body of water around Antarctica is a ocean. Geography teachers will have to teach their students that the world has five oceans.
