Ever wanted to live at the base of a volcano? How about visit one of the most famous volcanos...Mt. Vesuvius?
After learning about volcanoes and the deadly eruption at Pompeii, students must create a Welcome Brochure for Visitors of Pompeii. Students will cite factual information about those buried alive, killed by the tsunami, and warning signs of an eruption. Finally, students add to the brochure their recommendation for an evacuation route if the volcano erupts while you are visiting!
This unique approach to writing an argumentative essay will inspire all students to write an argumentative piece about the best evacuation route. The end student artifact is a wonderful brochure.
