Oceans cover 70 percent of Earth’s entire surface. Landmasses thus amount to only 30 percent. When you see photos from space, it’s easy to understand why Earth is called the “Blue Planet.”

Information and ideas:
The students should discuss the proportions of the individual continents and oceans on Earth’s surface.
