We've only got a few minutes,
so get ready for more fun from The Let's Go Club!
Fact fans, today we're finding out all about oceans.
Dolphins that flip
Surfers with tricks
A scary shark fin
Dare you dip your toes in?
Swirling waves on rocks crashing
Lighthouses that stop boats smashing
And ships with windy sails.
Let's dive into those facts.
First up, there is twice as much ocean on Earth as dry land.
That sure is a lot of seaside.
The seas and oceans cover so much of the planet that from way out
in space the Earth looks like a big blue marble.
All that water means a lot of sailing,
and on old maps of the oceans,
sea monsters were drawn to show places that hadn't been explored.
You wouldn't want to bump into them during a seaside paddle!
Next, a blue whale's tongue is as big as an elephant.
Who would have TRUNK it?
Blue whales are the largest animals ever to have lived on our planet.
They might have a giant tongue, but whales don't have any teeth,
and they eat the tiniest of sea creatures -
little critters called krill.
When it comes to being a bigmouth, the blue whale has got it licked!
Next, some oceans are heavier than others.
I'll take that with a pinch of salt!
All seawater has salt in it that has washed into the ocean
from rocks on land.
But some oceans have more salt than others,
and the saltier the water, the more it weighs.
What's super about salt is the more that's in the sea,
the easier it is to float in,
and that should really float your boat.
And finally, in the deep, dark ocean
there are fish that make their own light.
Sounds a bit fishy to me.
These fantastic bright sparks have a special part of their body
that glows and shines.
The light makes it easier for the fish to catch food,
hook up with their friends, or scare off other sea creatures.
Some shimmery swimmers can even flash their lights on and off.
Anyone for a dance at the underwater disco? Fact!
You can join The Let's Go Club too.
Just grab a grown-up and head to the CBeebies website.
There are songs to sing along to, things to make and do,
and CBeebies Radio too!
Remember, we're the club that never closes.
