Evolution of Earth Infographic
Students research the evolution of the planet and the influence of early life on Earth's atmosphere. Specifically addressing these topics:
- Early Earth: The origin of the planet Earth; Early characteristics of Earth
- Early Earth’s Atmosphere: Composition; Role of Volcanisms; Introduction of CO2 to the atmosphere
- Life on Earth: First forms of life; How life changed the atmosphere
Then, they create a digital infographic to share that information. The infographic should make obvious how the composition of the atmosphere has changed over time and what caused those changes. It should also be clear how these chemical changes relate to life on Earth.
This resource includes directions for students, a scoring rubric, and templates for the infographic in Google Slides.
