According to scientific theory, the Earth was formed 5 billion years ago from the remains of a super-nova explosion. Some stars grow to gigantic sizes and explode at the end of their life cycles. These super-nova explosions leave behind huge amounts of dust and debris. Eventually the debris orbits a new star. Over time, static electricity holds the tiny bits together. As the bits combine and grow larger in size, gravity between them attracts them to one another. With yet more time, the dust particles can combine to form rocky asteroids, meteors and planets.
This is the very beginning of our Earth Science study. I hope you will sign-up to follow Highhill Education by email and continue to visit to see many more hands-on Earth science activities.
