How do you make facts from a fifth grade Geography textbook exciting? 

How do you make facts from a fifth grade Geography textbook exciting? 

Solution:

A colorful, interactive infographic

Just by reading a number in a book, students probably won't remember that at 22,829 ft. Mt. Aconcagua is the highest point of elevation in South America. But if kids can interact and with these number and see them visually, the likelihood of that they’ll process and remember the information is higher. According to an article on Psychology Today by Haig Kouyoumadijan Ph.D. “Words are abstract and rather difficult for the brain to retain, whereas visuals are concrete and, as such, more easily remembered.” The colors and interactivity of the infographic can help students remember information as well as making learning more exciting.

When creating this infographic I chose the bright colors and layered effect to seem like it was made out of construction paper but on a chalkboard. I wanted it to be something colorful and lively that looked familiar to kids. I decided to make it interactive not only to make the information fun to play with, but also because an image covered in facts and numbers can look overwhelming or be hard to read. So by making the graphic interactive the user can choose which information they want to see.
