Graphic organizer for the three types of volcanoes.
How I use this:
1. I write names of volcanoes on notecards. I make sure to have a mix of shield, cinder cone, and strato. In pairs, they research their volcano and fill in the information in the correct column.
2. Group them with all other volcanoes of their same type to compare and find patterns.
3. Regroup them so they are in groups containing all 3 types and compare and contrast.
4. Talk about how they believe the three types of volcanoes are classified, formed, etc... based on the research and grouping they participated in.
