Product Description
Teacher favorite!
Student-friendly - Map is easy to read, bold and clean.
Instructions are simple and clear.

Students plot the location of the Ring of Fire using the locations of earthquakes and volcanoes. For added interest, the data is not just simple coordinates. Each volcano's name and country is given, and each earthquake includes the date, magnitude and country.

First, students "work up" the World Map by adding continent labels and identifying the equator and prime meridian. (You may want to lead them through this.) Then, students plot earthquakes and volcanoes on the World Map in different colors. The coordinates effectively show the pattern of the Ring of Fire. When the Ring of Fire is fully completed, students answer 7 analysis questions.

Two sets of data are included. One set includes 32 coordinates EACH for volcanoes and earthquakes, and the other (to save time or for modification) includes 20 coordinates each for volcanoes and earthquakes. This is a Word document, making it easy to modify even further, if necessary.

For this activity, you will print 3 pages.
1. World Map
2. Instructions and Analysis
3. Volcano/Earthquake Data (I save these and reuse them year-to-year)
