Okay, but if you look at a map of all of North America, you'll see that
the Great Lakes are really part of a chain that ring the Canadian (or
Laurentian) Shield, and it's really just history that's designated
HOMES* as the 5 that are known as *the* Great Lakes. But if size
matters, and being part of this pre-Cambrian ring counts, then you'd
have to add the following lakes, most of which is larger than Erie or
Ontario, and some approach the size of Huron and Michigan:

Lake of the Woods
Winnipeg
Winnipegosis
Reindeer
Athabasca
Great Slave; and
Great Bear



*a mnemonic: Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, Superior

"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high
and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our
mark."
--Michelangelo Buonarroti
