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:
- 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.
- 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.
