Looking for something different to jazz up your volcano unit? This resource is easily adaptable for grades 4-8 (multiple formats included- see preview). Students will color, cut, and assemble the three main volcano types. There are three formats of the base- choose whichever best suits your class. Read about each of the types as you glue/tape the volcano base down. A follow-up handout is included that has students compare the different types of volcanoes- where they are found, the type of magma involved, the eruption type, and resulting shape.

Answer key included for handout.

Teacher directions included, with photos.

This resource is now available as part of my Volcano Bundle with Student Workbook.
