Hey You: Lesson #6

Hey You –

Today’s Topic: The Panama Canal.

The canal connects The Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.  The canal is in Central America and saves boats a lot of time.  Couple fun facts:

  1. The Atlantic Ocean is East of the Pacific Ocean, but the entrance on the Altantic side is west of the entrance on the Pacific Side.
  2. The Famous Locks raise boats in steps so they can cross the land.  Boats step up to a 40 mile lake, cross the country, then step down to the other ocean.

Cool!
