This 30-question standards-based handout allows students to be engaged while watching the exciting Nova documentary "Killer Volcanoes." You can then extend the activities beyond watching the show, with a number of graphic organizers for fun and creative days of class work, including drawing, creating a skit and writing.
This product is not associated with PBS.
I have used this with intermediate ESL students by putting the Spanish subtitles on, and translating the questions using Google Translate. Note - the level of language in the documentary would be hard for beginner ESL students.
The documentary is available on Netflix (with other language subtitles) and PBS.
