This lesson presents volcanoes through the making of volcano models. While students are constructing their physical representations of volcanoes, they will be filled with questions about volcanoes as well as how to build their models. This process will provide students with a tangible reference for learning about volcanoes and give them a chance to problem-solve as they build their models. Students ... Full description.

In this lesson, students will explore volcanoes by constructing models and reflect upon their learning through drawing sketches of their models. Once they have finished making their models, they will experiment with making their volcanoes erupt. They will observe how eruption changes the original form of their volcano models. In this way, students see first hand how this type of phenomena creates ... Full description.

This letter is part of a series in which a participant in the Teachers Experiencing Antarctica (TEA) program shares her work and discoveries with her friend, a glacial geologist. It discusses the many hazards that researchers need to avoid while working in Antarctica including dehydration, hypothermia, frostbite, sunburn of the eyes, and trench foot. She also describes the massive amount of gear they ... Full description.

This web page uses photographs and illustrations of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, to illustrate the typical growth and collapse of lava deltas, fan-shaped platforms formed when pahoehoe lava enters the ocean for extended periods of time. The page also discusses the hazards associated with active lava deltas. 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 United States Geological Survey (USGS) fact sheet is designed to educate visitors about safety in preparation for visiting Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii. This volcano has been erupting almost continuously since 1983 and is noted for its approachable lava flows; however, it undergoes many changes that can be unpredictable and life threatening. Topics include volcanic hazards such as bench collapse, ... Full description.
