Which is more memorable?
The child’s playhouse stands thirty feet high and is ten feet across the front.
Let’s see how.
What visual conventions do we use to represent each of these interrelationships?
Most ocean pollution caused by humans is concentrated along the coasts of continents. Industrial wastes, often containing concentrations of metals and chemicals, sometimes get into seawater and harm organisms. Pesticides (insect killers) and herbicides (weed killers) used in farming reach the ocean as runoff. Crop fertilizers and human sewage create a different kind of problem. They fertilize the water. This causes some types of plant plankton to reproduce very rapidly. When these plants die, they’re decomposed by huge numbers of bacteria. The problem is that the bacteria use up much of the oxygen in the water during respiration. Therefore, other organisms such as fish can’t get the oxygen they need, and they die.
Herbicides (weed killers)
The earth’s climate has cooled and warmed naturally with irregular fluctuations over millions of years. However, man’s activities are contributing to climatic changes. As a result of man’s activities during the industrial and nuclear ages, the rate of climatic change is predicted to increase dramatically.
According to the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990, pollution should be prevented or reduced at the source whenever feasible. However, pollution that cannot be prevented or reduced should be recycled in an environmentally safe manner whenever feasible. For the pollution that cannot be prevented or recycled, it should be treated in an environmentally safe manner whenever feasible. Disposal or other release into the environment should be employed only as a last resort and should be conducted in an environmentally safe manner.
Earth’s history on the geological time scale is divided into four geological eras: Precambrian Era, Paleozoic Era, Mesozoic Era, and Cenozoic Era. The Precambrian Era is the longest era. It lasts about 4 billion years and accounts for 87 percent of Earth’s history. The Paleozoic Era last about 345 million years, and the Mesozoic Era about 160 million years. The Cenozoic Era, the era in which we now, has lasted for only 65 million years.
Paleozoic Era (345 million years)
Precambrian Era (4 billion years)
Mesozoic Era (160 million years)
Cenozoic Era (65 million years)
The life-history of the butterfly and fly is made up of four stages, egg, larva, pupa, and adult. These insects show complete metamorphosis. The larva stage resembles a caterpillar or worm. In the pupa stage, the insect lives in its cocoon. Grasshoppers and dragonflies are examples of insects that go through “incomplete metamorphosis” in which insects show three stages, egg, larva, and adult. In the larva stage the insect looks like a small adult insect.

Human blood is much like sea water. While sea water contains 55% chlorine, blood contains 45% chlorine. Sea water contains 34% sodium, 3% calcium, and 1% potassium. Blood contains 38% sodium, 2% calcium, and 3% potassium.
