Comment on this resource
This activity has students plot the locations of active volcanoes on a world map to discover how these locations relate to the those of earthquakes and lithospheric plate boundaries. Students work in three groups, two of which plot earthquakes and the boundaries of the Earth's plates. The three maps are superimposed and students discuss the relationships. This activity has an objective, a list of ... 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 site contains information about the general model geologists have developed to explain how most mountain ranges form. This model suggests that mountain building involves three stages, which are accumulation of sediments, an orogenic period of rock deformation and crustal uplift, and a period of crustal uplift caused by isostatic rebound and block-faulting. The later two stages of this model involve ... Full description.

This is a lesson about volcanic activity. Learners will make volcanic eruptions using baking soda and vinegar, and then use colored play dough to make a record of the flow patterns. Then, groups of learners exchange their volcanoes so they can make maps, take core samples, and record and interpret the history of the volcano, based on the maps and observations. This is activity C-15 as part of Universe ... Full description.

This site is part of a volcanology research project and a project in teaching Earth Sciences. Its primary goal is to spread volcanological data and research results, mainly about Stromboli, an island volcano in Italy. The creators would like to give users the feeling of (almost) being part of on-going research on this beautiful and permanently active Italian volcano. Volcanic activity on the island ...
