Excerpt from passage

There are seven continents in the world -- North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and Antarctica. Of the seven, Antarctica is a continent that does not have any towns or cities where people live because it is covered in ice and snow. All the other continents have many people living there. The continent we live on is called North America and it has many seas and oceans around its coastline. In the north there is the Artic Ocean and the Bering Sea, in the east there is the Atlantic Ocean and in the west there is the Pacific Ocean.
