Journey to the Centre of the Earth is a neat infographic produced by the BBC. As you scroll down the infographic you will see little pieces of information slide into the graphic from the sides. Each of these pieces of information is a fun fact like the maximum depth of a metal detector, the depths of sunken boats, the depths of the layers of the Earth, and the pressure you would feel at various depths below the Earth’s surface.
Applications for Education
Journey to the Centre of the Earth provides a good way for students to get a sense of just how far it is the center of the Earth. The depth references made throughout the infographic are ones that most students will understand (how deep an earth worm burrows, for example).
