Hurricane diagram

Hurricanes can start like any regular storm, but with the right conditions, they can turn into much larger and more destructive weather systems. To clear up any confusion first, a hurricane is the same to a typhoon or cyclone. These different names are used based on where the storm develops. Hurricanes refer to the storms […]

Block mountain diagram

Our planet’s plate tectonics can unleash incredibly powerful forces to change the landscape on the surface in several significant ways. One of the most striking formations that can form from tectonic movement is the block mountain. While they aren’t as common as fold mountains, you might actually be familiar with the famous block mountains in […]

River diagram

A river is a stream of water flowing from an uphill source to reach the sea. These uphill sources can vary, from melting snow or springs of water, to rain falling in the mountains. Glaciers – hulking bodies of ice atop mountains – can also serve as a river’s source. Starting from the headwaters of […]

Faulting diagram

Faults are the lines and cracks on the surface of the Earth that usually depict the boundaries between two blocks of rocks, or plates. As you can recall from the plate tectonics theory, these plates constantly swim on top of a layer of slightly melted rock underground called the asthenosphere. Faults form naturally to help […]

Map of continents – drag and drop names

The Earth’s surface contains several landmasses, the largest stretches of which are known as continents. Schools in the United States and other English-speaking places usually list the world as having seven continents – Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Oceania, and Antarctica. You might notice that Asia and Europe actually compose a single, massive […]

Diagram of latitude and longitude

Latitudes and longitudes are pretty old tools in the history of navigation. Back before GPS was commonplace, travellers from as early as 600 BC used the stars, the sun, and the horizon to properly find their position and avoid getting lost along their routes. The criss-crossing lines we can see on a map serve as […]

Solar system diagram

To say that our solar system is a fantastic place would be an understatement. Although the Sun pales in comparison to the size and temperature of many other stars, it’s still an extremely superheated ball of mainly hydrogen gas that’s hot enough to give you sunburns from 152 million kilometers away. The solar system involves […]

Diagram of a fold mountain

As hard as it is to believe at first, it’s not uncommon for someone to find the shells or fossils of sea creatures atop certain mountains. This isn’t some elaborate prank – fold mountains, which are pretty common around the world, are made of sedimentary rock that used to be part of ancient bodies of […]

Coastal erosion diagram

The sea is constantly reclaiming land along shores and coastlines. Over your own lifetime, you might even notice the beaches or cliffs you’ve seen in your childhood get smaller. Coastal erosion is responsible for this shrinkage of land. The force of the tides, currents and waves slowly whittle away at the rock, removing particles of […]

Mitosis diagram labelling game

Mitosis allows a cell to split into two genetically-similar daughter cells. It involves the splitting of its original DNA into a pair of duplicates and the process of physically dividing the original cell to spawn two new cells. Through mitosis, an organism can replace aging, damaged, or destroyed cells. Mitosis is generally divided into four […]
