Interesting Infographics About Nature

Last week I shared a Nature infographic and video about wolves and buffalo. What I failed to mention in that post is that Nature regularly publishes interesting infographics about a wide variety of animals. Some of the more recent infographics on the Nature blog feature ducks, dung beetles, snowy owls, and eels.

Applications for Education
Many of the infographics that you'll find on the Nature website correspond to videos on the site. After your students watch one of the videos have them create their own infographics to summarize the main points of the video. After creating their infographics your students can compare their work to the professionally-produced infographics on the Nature site.
