This is a powerpoint on Volcanoes that is a lesson from a unit I created on Natural Disasters for a physical geography unit (other lessons also available). It covers:
- What is a volcano?
- Their connection to plate tectonics
- Types of volcanoes
- Their dangers
- Why people live around them
Also included: many picture, diagrams and examples. Powerpoint is formated with entrance animations so you can show what's on the slide when YOU want to. At the end of powerpoint are three videos linked to youtube showing students real life examples of things they just learned. Note: Videos require an internet connection (cable or wireless) to work BUT if you are unable to show them nothing is lost in terms of teaching material from the slide show.
Student note-taking booklet included.
