Did you know that the Mariana Trench is deeper than Mt. Everest is tall? It is, and this infographic from Our Amazing Planet will take you from one to the other and several points in between.
The graphic contains lots if interesting information, such as the forms of life inhabiting various ocean depths, the heights of assorted landmarks around the globe, and the “death zone” — the height above sea level at which the atmosphere no longer contains enough oxygen to support human life.
This should be an interesting companion in a science or geography class. You could use it as a jumping-off point in discussions about different varieties of life and the conditions they live in, or a talk about the geographic features found around the globe. You might not want to print it out, though, as this thing would probably be almost as tall as Everst itself.
