Your life on earth

Your life on Earth is a fascinating interactive from the BBC showing how you and the world have changed since you were born. You can:

find out how, since the date of your birth, your life has progressed; including how many times your heart has beaten, and how far you have travelled through space. Investigate how the world around you has changed since you’ve been alive; from the amount the sea has risen, and the tectonic plates have moved, to the number of earthquakes and volcanoes that have erupted. Grasp the impact we’ve had on the planet in your lifetime; from how much fuel and food we’ve used to the species we’ve discovered and endangered.

What I particularly like about this interactive is that children (and adults) can personalise it by entering their own data. Have a go!
