Visual Literacy - Amazing Earth Infographic

I spend time with my preservice teachers sharing strategies for developing students' visual literacy skills. Analyzing good examples can be a powerful way to help them understand how important these skills are. Here's one of my favorites. It is an "infographic" showing the Earth's surface from the tallest mountain to the deepest trench. I have two words of advice--keep scrolling!
