In Oceania we discover the island cultures that populate the Pacific Ocean. We learn about four different cultural areas - Australia, Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia and how the peoples in each area live their lives.

We explore how islands are formed, the Great Barrier Reef and take a peek at the animals that live in the Marianas Trench. This is also our opportunity to take a closer look at types of agriculture and the effect that tourism can have a nation's economy.**Please note that four pages of this book cover the atrocities of the Pacific War including racism, medical experimentation, cannabalism, and trophy taking.
