In this lesson students will use earthquake and volcano data to explore the relationship between earthquakes, plate tectonics, and volcanoes. This in an online project in which students use the Internet to collect and analyze real-time data. It includes four activities in which they will plot the data, look for patterns, attempt to project where their homes might be located in a million years, and ... Full description.

Volcanic eruptions are thought to be responsible for the global cooling that has been observed for a few years after a major eruption. The amount and global extent of the cooling depend on the force of the eruption and, possibly, its latitude. When large masses of gases from the eruption reach the stratosphere, they can produce a large, widespread cooling effect. As a prime example, the effects of ... Full description.

At this interactive site the student attempts to rate the eruption of a volcano according to the Volcanic Explosive Index (VEI). After seeing the step by step eruption of an actual volcano, the student is introduced to VEI scale, which includes a description of the eruption, volume of ejected material, plume height, eruption type, duration, total known eruptions with that VEI, and an example. Each ... Full description.

This activity is an active simulation of an explosive volcanic eruption. The model volcano is a plastic 35 mm film cannister that erupts (the lid blows off) when gas pressure generated by dissolving alka seltzer is sufficiently high. It is realistic in that the timing of the eruption is difficult to predict precisely and in that the eruption occurs when the pressure of the gas exceeds the confining ... Full description.

In this lesson plan students will learn about the theory of plate tectonics and the geological history of Earth. They will investigate the region known as the Ring of Fire, where 75 percent of the active and dormant volcanoes of Earth are located. Students will review the theory of plate tectonics; use the Internet to research the Ring of Fire and answer questions about this region; view an animation ... Full description.

This lesson plan is part of the DiscoverySchool.com lesson plan library for grades 6-8. It focuses on predicting relationships between natural phenomena to help reduce the amount of damage done; protecting habitats and species from volcanoes, for example. Students research a specific volcano in this lesson, and report on its type, activity, impacts of eruptions, and magma types to learn more about ... Full description.

Until recently, people living in a volcano's shadow had little help in predicting eruptions. In the past 300 years, volcanic eruptions, most of them unexpected, have killed more than 250,000 people. In 2000, experts estimated that 500 million people were living in areas at risk from catastrophic volcanic eruptions. This illustrated essay describes the strides scientists have made in eruption forecasting ... Full description.

What causes volcanoes? What role do they play in the formation and maintenance of our planet? And is it ever possible to predict when and where they are about to erupt? This radio broadcast covers the science of volcanology; Earth's layers; the rising up of magma between tectonic plates; the difference between diffusive and explosive volcanoes; and the ongoing cooling of Earth since its formation, ...
