Journey to the Centre of the Earth

Posted by:

BBCJourneyThe BBC have created an amazing new website called Journey to the Centre of the Earth  The journey is written in a language that children will easily understand and I feel sure that any pupils studying the formation of the Earth, or gravity will be fascinated by it. They will also probably be amazed to read that a deep mine has to be cooled and that at a depth of 1000m, the pressure on top of one’s head would feel like four elephants were balanced there. Very difficult concepts are portrayed well, in a way older pupils will clearly grasp.

“How far would you travel to reach the Earth’s core? And what would you see along the way? Discover what lies beneath…”
